City sounds out public for national  Smart Cities’ challenge

The City of Sherbrooke is taking part in the federal government's national Smart Cities Challenge, which aims to encourage communities to improve the quality of life of residents through innovation, data and connected technologies. Participating cities and municipalities have until April 24 to submit their project. To do this, the City is asking the public to help determine priority areas on which to focus its challenge project. To that end, an electronic survey that takes about five minutes to complete has been posted online at This survey will be available until April 8 and the results will be available soon after on the challenge page the City of Sherbrooke website. Another survey will also be conducted among students from the Université de Sherbrooke, Bishop's and the Cégep de Sherbrooke to help understand what could motivate them to settle in Sherbrooke after completing their studies. "These consultations will allow the committee in place to use our collective intelligence to understand the concerns of the public and to prioritize structuring projects," says Councillor and UMQ Smart Cities Commissioner Annie Godbout.
