Mississauga’s SMRTCTY initiatives are about transformational city building and will focus on creating vibrant, inclusive communities with a high quality of life.
Mississauga will serve as a model of government-led smart city urban development. People-centred, neighbourhood focused and forward-ready we will use technology to address urban opportunities and challenges in order to create a city where people choose to live, work and play.
Mississauga’s SMRTCTY includes digital initiatives such as Wireless Mississauga (free public Wi-Fi); digital services through the city’s website, apps and other platforms; computer access and Maker Spaces at our libraries; and many other tools and services.
As a young city, Mississauga has had an opportunity to build technology into our infrastructure, systems and processes in tandem with the rise of digital technology in our society. We also value the social, cultural and economic implications of digital technologies and how they shape our communities.
The SMRTCTY Master Plan provides a framework for how The City of Mississauga will approach digital projects, engage with the public and look at digital transformation. It also launches the SMRTCTY program that will provide ongoing initiatives, public engagement, and thought leadership around digital modernization and smart city technologies. The outcomes we are looking to achieve are ambitious – to enable a sustainable and desirable city, where people feel empowered, safe, healthy and happy.
At the core, Mississauga’s SMRTCTY initiatives are about creating A Smart City for Everybody. We believe that when everyone wins we all win.
The SMRTCTY Master Plan was endorsed by City Council in June 2019.
