The Digital Strategy is Oakville’s roadmap to becoming to the most digitally connected community in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).
The strategy identifies the following areas of focus to move the town’s digital transformation forward:
Engagement with citizens is at the core of the digital strategy and we are committed to engaging community members early and often so that digital services are designed to meet your needs and expectations.
Our new beta website will be a testing ground for new digital ideas, tools and services. It will feature projects that are works in progress, or the sparks of good ideas that need your input and further testing. Stay tuned for an invitation to collaborate and design with us.
Becoming the the most digitally connected community in the GTA will require strong collaborative partnerships with academic and private sector organizations.
Oakville produces enormous amounts of data about places, people and events, and this wealth of information will help us make better informed, evidence-based decisions that will best serve the community.
The town is committed to being open, accessible and accountable. We will build on our open data program and continue to proactively share our data to see what’s possible when government and the community collaborate.
Smart city technologies use sensors to connect things, such as building controls, environmental management, and video monitoring, to the Internet. These sensors collect data – everything from wear and tear on an engine, to the temperature of a building, to traffic volume. Smart technology is completely changing how municipalities solve complicated urban challenges related to transit, emissions, traffic, energy management, economic development and more.
