In his capacity as chair of Ontario’s Big City Mayors, Barrie Mayor Jeff Lehman will promote the province wide Cities of Tomorrow student innovation competition and showcase at the University of Waterloo.
Ontario’s large urban centres face complex challenges as they continue to grow. We want to hear your solutions in the areas of infrastructure, finance, job creation and housing.
Ontario’s Big City Mayors are looking for ambitious and innovative proposals that city councils may apply to help build the Cities of Tomorrow. This tasks teams with identifying an urban technology, process, policy or program that can address problems unique to large cities and which intersect with the priorities of Ontario’s Big City Mayors.
Teams of 1-5 students can submit a maximum 2,500 word proposal that outlines their idea and why it is worthwhile.
Winning entrants will be presented with a total of $50,000 in cash prizes.
