i-CANADA Chair Bill Hutchison Invites Business, Government & Educational Community Leaders to Help Achieve The New National Dream: the Creation of Vibrant Intelligent Communities at Launch Event
October 21, 2011

Every day, a new Mayor or partner joins i-CANADA, to help power-up the Intelligent Nation.  At i-CANADA’s conference, “The New National Dream”, opinion-leaders will consolidate plans for their transformation into Intelligent Communities  -- places where jobs grow, the environment is sustainable, and life is stimulated by the arts, media and a vibrant society.

 We are calling on private & public sector executives to take a leadership role by participating in the first i-CANADA event being held at Caesars in Windson, Ontario, November 16-17, 2011.

Register for the “New National Dream” and share:

      -       The resources your organizations can offer to build competitive communities;

      -          The secret to creating an ecosystem for growing millionaires;

      -          A graphic tool that shows your community’s strengths;

      -          Best practices from successful global cities;

      -          The status of i-communities across Canada;

      -          The i-Waterfront billion-bit challenge; and,

      -          Channeling collaboration among community groups.


In addition to local and national political leaders and a social media group of 1100 executives, partners for the event include TechnoMontreal, the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, and the Association of Municipalities of Ontario. It’s a great opportunity to build your network of key contacts.
