The urban community of Toronto dates from 1793 when British colonial officials founded the Town of York on what was then the Upper Canadian frontier. That village grew to become the City of Toronto in 1834, and through its subsequent evolution and expansion, Toronto has emerged as one of the most liveable and multicultural urban places in the world.
Transparency and collaboration are essential to growing and maintaining a successful city. In Montreal, there is a strong sense of partnership whether it is between public government and private enterprises, or between private businesses. During Citywise™ Montreal, all attendees recognized that a mutual effort is required in order to ensure open communication with regards to the sharing of data and video across jurisdictional boundaries.
