Canada's Smart Cities challenge is split into three tiers. In early summer the top 20 finalists were announced. In the Spring of 2019 one winning city will be awarded $50 million to implement a smart city solution; while two medium-sized cities will take home $10 million; followed by $5 million slated for a city with under 30,000 residents.
The finalists are listed in their respective categories below, with a short description taken from the government’s site detailing what their focus areas, and smart city solution challenge will be. The table is listed from the smallest 5 M to the largest 50 M prizes.
