Richmond is an island city located on Canada’s west coast. Comprised of 17 islands, and situated in the mouth of the Fraser River, we are a crossroads of trade and culture and are at the centre of the ecologically important Fraser River Estuary. Given our unique geography, Richmond has unique challenges in mobility and will be subject to the increasing effects of climate change.
Our Smart Cities Challenge initiative is designed to achieve our vision:
Together with our community, government, academic and technology team, we will identify and mitigate risk and improve the day-to-day quality of life for residents and businesses on our island.
The achievement of our vision statement will result in the following outcomes:
- Protect our Island City
- Enable More Informed Decision-Making
- Integrate Communications and Enhance Community Resilience
