Panel Organized by: Monique Crichlow, Compute Ontario | Dr. David Castle, School of Public Administration & Gustavson School of Business, University of Victoria

Smart cities leverage data-intensive technologies like the Internet of Things collecting vast amounts of data from public spaces. In Canada, policymakers are grappling with a rapidly shifting dynamic between advancing innovation strategies and ensuring the public good. Data trusts have emerged as a possible solution for managing the vast amount of data that smart cities will generate, in a way that provides accountability for a wide variety of stakeholders with different interests.

Examining the data governance models proposed by Smart Cities Challenge winners Nunavut Communities and the City of Guelph and Wellington County, this panel will draw on a variety of perspectives to discuss the merits of data trusts, and policy considerations to support the accountable advancement of data exchange within the context of the smart city.
