What we offer
Collaborating to create more liveable, inclusive communities
Community Solutions Network
The Community Solutions Network is a new platform for communities to connect and build a national centre of excellence in open smart cities. A program of Future Cities Canada, the Network is a community-centric platform, serving every type of Canadian community: big, mid-sized, Indigenous, small and northern.
As the project lead, Evergreen is working with OpenNorth and partners to provide valuable information, learning opportunities and advisory services in key areas of data and technology for municipal and community leaders, helping to improve the lives of residents.
How we work with you
We make information about open smart cities issues and approaches available and accessible to everyone. We provide advice and share knowledge, lessons learned and best practices related to complex 21st-century issues affecting Canada and the world, from data privacy to food security.
We help communities talk to the right people and find the right partners. We tap into existing networks or create new ones, facilitating connections and conducting active matchmaking between communities and stakeholders.
Connect with other leaders through events and workshops
You may qualify for help to implement your ideas through one-on-one advisory services
What is an Open Smart City?
An Open Smart City is where all sectors and residents collaborate in mobilizing data and technologies to develop their communities through fair, ethical, and transparent governance that balances economic development, social progress, and environmental responsibility.
