Coquitlam joins regional counterparts at the City of Maple Ridge and the Township of Langley, and international counterparts including Belfast, Northern Ireland, Moscow, Russia and Wellington, New Zealand in achieving this distinction. In total, eight Canadian communities are on the list vying to be named the 2021 Intelligent Community of the Year in October 2021.
The Smart21 Communities are chosen by ICF based on quantitative and qualitative data on six key areas: connect, sustain, include, engage, innovate and work. Under the ICF Method, these factors determine a community’s competitiveness in economic, social and cultural terms.

Coquitlam’s Technology Road Map (PDF) is a high-level strategic document that will guide how the City will choose and use technology to improve its business functions, operational efficiency and services to the community in the coming years.
Work on the plan started in 2016 with a view to making sure the most effective technology is being used, and meeting the City’s needs now and into the future.
Presented to City Council in February 2018, the Technology Roadmap will also help the City navigate the rapidly-changing world of technology by providing a method to identify, evaluate, prioritize and implement new solutions as they become available or cost-effective.
