This assessment report communicates the state of smart city initiatives in four cities in Canada (Edmonton, Guelph, Montréal, and Ottawa) by reporting on how these cities are developing and rolling out their smart city plans. In order to capture the complexity of inter-jurisdictional processes and coordination related to smart cities in Canada, we have provided an additional case study about the governance and management of Ontario’s electricity grid and smart meter data.
