Building the Community of the 21st Century!

The Intelligent Community Forum is a global network of cities and regions with a think tank at its center. Its mission is to help communities use information and communications technology (ICT) to create inclusive prosperity, to tackle social and governance challenges and to enrich their quality of life.

Welcome to our inaugural pages of the ICF Canada Website. While some of the site may still be under construction we thought it would be valuable for our members and interested parties to begin to have access to the information about Smart and Intelligent Communities across Canada. If you are interested in the overall global Intelligent Community movement, please visit: www.intelligentcommunity.org

Through nearly two decades of goodwill and branding, municipalities and their companies and universities have benefitted from the relationship that they have had with ICF, during the years in which they were promoted as an “Intelligent Community” as well as in follow-up with investors and people interested in their communities as “Intelligent Communities”. It is difficult to place a specific metric to attracting and maintaining investors and talent based on the image and brand of the community as an Intelligent Community, however we have had many testimonials and case studies which have attributed their success to the relationship that these communities have had with ICF and their specific recognition as a qualified Intelligent Community. ICF Canada will build on this positive attribution and will promote all of the Intelligent Communities in Canada to investors and people alike who understand the value of this information and the relationships with ICF and among other Intelligent Communities across Canada and around the world.
