Group Plans Smart City Conference on March 13

The Library and Archives Canada, along with the University of Ottawa and Ottawa 2017, Invest Ottawa and the City of Gatineau, invite the media to go to the Smart cities: Imagining the future conference. It takes place on March 13, 2017.

Canada is part of a worldwide trend toward using technology to turn its urban environments into Smart Cities. Residents’ lives are to be positively affected in areas such as the economy, education and culture.

The conference will visualize a “smart” region, and listen to plans being carried out by Ottawa-Gatineau to build Smart City infrastructure.
