Oxford is taking part in the Smart Cities Challenge, a Government of Canada competition to improve community through innovation, data and connected technology

Oxford County is up for the Smart Cities Challenge

The Smart Cities Challenge is a Canada-wide competition that encourages communities to adopt a "smart cities" approach to improving the lives of residents through innovation, data and connected technology. On April 24, 2018, Oxford County and the eight area municipalites submitted an application to compete for one of two prizes of up to $10 million for communities with populations under 500,000. On May 1, Oxford was notified that its submission had been accepted into the Challenge.
