    Montreal has been named 2016 Intelligent Community of the Year in recognition of its Smart City plan, which was introduced in 2011. The honour was bestowed by the Intelligent Community Forum at an event at the Columbus Zoo on Thursday.

It also notes that Montreal’s universities have a high graduation rate that ICF says feeds “the region’s fast-growing knowledge economy.”
