At the Awards Gala, the winners are recognized for their innovation, expertise, and leadership in Canada’s advanced technology community.

Some of the key topics that we will explore include:
– Resources for building competitive communities
– An ecosystem for growing millionaires
– Graphic tool showing community strengths
– Best practices from successful global cities
– Status of i-communities across Canada
– The i-Waterfront billion-bit challenge

Our experts will provide a vision for the future i-CANADA. Hear from the likes of:
|William (Bill) Hutchison, Chair, i-CANADA|
