About

Kanata North technology hub, a globally significant innovation ecosystem in the heart of the nation’s capital, is leading a new wave of collaboration in-order to transform the 1970’s industrial business park to a complete and connected living lab community of over 500 businesses and 33,000 employees.

Challenge

Do you want to help Kanata North be the green high-tech capital of Canada? People and companies do not realize the amount of water and electricity they use day-to-day. Most of the time, we rely on people to monitor their usage! This leads to an incredible amount of waste, which is costly for companies and harmful to the environment. We have seen the impacts of climate change, like the several natural events that have occurred in our city over the last several years. We want YOU to help us develop a solution to water and electricity waste using 5G, IoT, etc!
