Smart City & Infrastructure Roadshow 2023

Smart City & Infrastructure Roadshow 2023

February 28 – March 9, 2023
Toronto | Halifax | Edmonton | Vancouver

Event Overview

Exploration of Technology and Initiatives in the Overarching Smart City Strategy

Smart City was a subjective term where each municipality had their own definition and project, which was included under the Smart City umbrella. As time passed, the relevancy of the term Smart City came into question as municipalities pivoted their priorities to accommodate present challenges and budget constraints.


At our Smart City Roadshow leaders will converge together to share their challenges, and build an ecosystem of knowledge, ideas, and solutions with a goal of increasing the connectivity between municipalities of all sizes. Explore how Smart City has evolved from being the responsibility of a siloed team, to an overarching strategy embedded within all organizational process. Join Public Sector Network’s Smart City Roadshow as municipalities share their success stories, strategies, and best practices with their local public sector peers.

What Your Peers Had to Say

I was fortunate to be a panelist at the City & Infrastructure National Insights event. It was an amazing experience working with the PSN team; they made sure every one was super prepared and comfortable with both the technology and the format well in advance of the event. I learned a lot from my fellow panelists and other key note speakers – it was a great investment of my time!
City of Maple Ridge

It was great to hear how other cities are looking for opportunities and implementing frameworks that help to mitigate/ manage climate change. I was really intrigued with the framework the City of Victoria has implemented and it’s continual efforts to look for more opportunities.
Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis Commission

Thank you for inviting me to chair the Building Green and Sustainable Communities Event. It was an inspirational opportunity and I enjoyed interacting with the excellent and insightful speakers.
