What is the Smart Cities Challenge?

The city of Airdrie is a finalist in the Government of Canada’s Smart Cities Challenge for our quest to become Canada’s healthiest city. We have a one in five chance at winning $10 million.

The Smart Cities Challenge is a pan-Canadian competition that encourages communities to solve their economic, environmental and social challenges by leveraging data and connected technology to improve the lives of their residents. Airdrie has proposed the development of a technology that will deliver real-world benefits to our citizens and have a meaningful and sustained impact on their health.

The Smart Cities Challenges isn’t the only thing we are doing to impact our citizen’s health.

What factors impact overall health?

There is more to health than diet, exercise and access to medical treatment.

These include how income and wealth is distributed, our employment and working conditions, access to social services and transportation and our ability to obtain quality education, food, and housing.

How do these eight factors shape our health?
