The 2009 Smart 21 Communities

The Intelligent Community Forum annouced the Smart 21 communities in October. There are three Canadian communities on the list including: Edmonton AB.,Kenora Ont., and Federicton NB.

Many people assume that the Intelligent Community awards are only given to large metropolitan communities. That is not correct.

All Alberta counties and muncipalities should review the Intelligent Community Indicators and decide how and when they will begin the migration to becoming an Intelligent Community.
