Challenge statement

We will be Canada’s first digitally democratic society with the highest rate of participation in local decision-making that is inclusive of our diverse population and most vulnerable citizens. In moving Niagara’s sense of belonging from 72% to 90% by 2028 we will improve economic vibrancy, health behaviors and civic engagement and this will be accomplished by creating a digital ecosystem that makes ‘invisible’ members of society visible and by developing reimagined connectivity hubs that enable participation by all.
