Thanks for your bright ideas for the Smart Cities challenge! 

The City of Red Deer is competing for a prize of up to $10 million to implement bold, innovative ideas that respond to challenges facing cities that use technology, connectivity and data. The competition calls on communities across the country to bring forward their best ideas for innovation using data and connected technologies to improve the lives of citizens. Read more about the Smart Cities Challenge here.

Thanks to the all ideas and feedback from Red Deer residents, we have been able to move forward with submitting an application to the Smart Cities Challenge. The deadline for the competition was April 24, 2018. Finalists of the challenge will be announced in the summer of 2018, and the announcement of the winners in spring 2019.
