Community Support Program

Community Support Program

The Government of Canada has selected the non-profit organization, Evergreen, to receive funding under the Smart Cities Community Support Program. Evergreen will work with OpenNorth, the Future Cities Canada collaborative platform, and numerous non-profit institutions and foundations to deliver activities across Canada.

The Smart Cities Community Support Program supports not-for-profit organizations to provide advisory and capacity-building services directly to communities of all sizes across Canada as they explore and implement smart cities approaches. These approaches can significantly improve the lives of residents.

For complete details about this Program, please consult the Application Guide. (The call for applications has now closed- guide for reference only.)

Through the Community Support Program, Evergreen has been selected to receive up to $4.6 million in funding over two years to implement the Community Solutions Network.

Community Solutions Network

As the project lead, Evergreen is working with OpenNorth and other partners to provide valuable information, learning opportunities, advisory and capacity building services to Canadian communities. Key areas of focus include smart technologies, data ownership, data management, privacy and security.

Communities across Canada are exploring how innovation, data and connected technology can solve their most persistent problems. The Smart Cities Challenge is encouraging communities to engage residents and implement bold and innovative ideas. The Community Solutions Network supports communities to advance their thinking on the use of smart cities approaches to help improve the lives of their residents.
