Canadian Geospatial Cities Forum: Canadian Smart Communities, Opportunity and Challenge in the Next Decade

Track Chair: Prashant Shukle

This track will span the idea of smart cities/municipalities from a policy/complexity thinking perspective; cyber security perspective; emergency management; sustainability (finance, infrastructure, environmental perspective) and open cities versus proprietary cities.

Our confirmed speakers for the track include : Thomas Townsend – former DM of Policy Horizons (an internal government of Canada think tank); Steve Liang – Sensor up; Bill Dunnion – Calian Technologies; Tracey Lauriault; Nadine Alameh (OGC); and a representative from the Insurance Bureau of Canada.

We will also be speaking with an indigenous consulting company. They will be discussing the engagement and capability of building for a “smart indigenous community” – one that integrates traditional knowledge.
