Collision Days are match-making events in cities that connect emerging technology companies with community leaders.

Idea Camps represent a series of regional events that bring together mid- and senior-level municipal staff and Indigenous leaders for peer-to-peer exchange and intensive instruction from experts to build capacity in the areas of open data, governance and public engagement.

Through expert training, peer-to-peer learning, and applying concepts to local case studies, participants learn about emerging trends, issues and approaches in open smart cities, as well as best practices and lessons learned. Participants will leave with toolkits and practical concepts to advance work locally.
