is the engine that will bring smart technologies and services to
St. Thomas and Elgin County. Successful "smart communities"
are built on broad-based, cross-sector partnerships that form when
organizations, government and business recognize that they can accomplish
more by working together.
So, who's getting involved? An initial elginconnects
Steering Group has been formed with representation from a wide range
of community sectors. Each organization brings their own expertise
and is committed to represent the broad interests of their sector
across the St. Thomas and Elgin community.
We are working to expand representation from
other sectors as well. Please contact
us with your suggestions and comments.
