ICF Smart Communities Challenge

By City Staff

Sarnia-Lambton's formal participation in the Intelligent Community Forum's (ICF) Smart Communities challenge has concluded for 2018.

A strong submission underscoring many of the innovative projects underway locally landed Sarnia-Lambton among the world's Smart21 Communities, but just short of ICF's Top7 Intelligent Communities grouping.

ICF's Top7 class of 2018 was announced from New York City today and will move on to compete for the title of Intelligent Community of the Year, which will be announced in London, England this June.

The Sarnia-Lambton Intelligent Community Taskforce remains committed to undertaking and advancing projects that use communications technology to build prosperity, equity, and an enhanced quality of life for all residents.

A partnership comprised of representatives from the Sarnia-Lambton Economic Partnership, County of Lambton, City of Sarnia, Bluewater Power, Bluewater Regional Networks, Brooke Telecom, Lambton College, and the Western Sarnia-Lambton Research Park applied to the ICF challenge on behalf of the community.
