The Smart Cities Challenge encourages communities to adopt a smart cities approach to improve the lives of their residents through innovation, data and connected technology.”
The Town of Annapolis Royal, Municipality of the County of Annapolis, Town of Digby, and the Municipality of the District of Digby have submitted a regional application to create a pioneering piece of infrastructure that will offer citizens safety and security from the threat of storm surges.
