City of Fredericton, New Brunswick Created free wireless network dubbed "Fred-eZone" that covers more than 8 square kilometers in the downtown core, running on the city’s fibre ring "We're a community divided by a river, and you can sit in the middle of the river and connect. In Fredericton, people book their swimming lessons online and the mayor does a weekly podcast.” Don Fitzgerald, Executive Director, Team Fredericton Since building the network, four online-based post-secondary schools have cropped up providing lots of jobs for the city's population – 70% of which have a post-secondary degree
City of Moncton, New Brunswick Sited for economic turn-around where region was dependant on railroad and industrial hub 20 years ago Focus on ICT has become known for its near-shore IT outsourcing industry Since 1990, jobs have been created, tripling employment in the IT sector over the past 10 years, which is the highest in Canada Collaborated with other towns "If you think the world ends at your municipal boundary, you're at a terrible disadvantage. If you look at your borders as being more porous, then you're going to get a leg up." Robert Bell, ICF Executive Director
Intelligent Community Forum This year's (Canadian) are all grappling with an economy in transition and turning to technology as a way to get a grip on the problem “Traditional drivers of the economy aren't as powerful as they used to be." Robert Bell, ICF Executive Director
