Many major cities around Canada, such as Vancouver and Toronto, are gearing up to collaborate with different smart technology providers to come up with innovative plans to achieve positive outcomes.

Some cities across Canada are reaching out to the community via survey to engage the residents to participate in the brainstorming phase of developing the smart city project.

Out of many smart technology applications offered around the world the latest trend seems to be clear: smart waste management. In 2017, there has been a sharp increase in government initiatives surrounding smart waste management and this is expected to be an upward trend.
