Roadmap to Pandemic Resilience - Smart City Sandbox

Roadmap to Pandemic Resilience

Lessons learned from smart municipalities across Canada

A Smart City Sandbox Event, Co-Hosted by Sandbox Partners OCE & IBI Group.

The term “smart city” has been buzzing across the globe for more than a decade, however citizens are not always aware what smart city components have an impact on their daily routines. When COVID-19 disrupted most people’s day-to-day schedule, municipalities had to respond. Fortunately, smart cities had the building blocks to respond quickly and communicate effectively. This panel discussion, made up of municipal experts engaged in the operation of cities, will discuss what their cities have done to become “smart”, how the pandemic has impacted their roadmap, and where they are going next with their smart city initiatives.
