Toronto Sidewalks Lab – What does this mean for Toronto and possibly you?

We are sharing What’s New to help keep you at the forefront of changes taking place around you.

Trending recently was the announcement from Sidewalks Lab (a Google sister company) on the $1.3 billion plan for Toronto’s Waterfront.

The plan is expected to include new and exciting technologies for Toronto such as intelligent sidewalks, autonomous vehicles and tall timber residential developments.

What does this mean for Toronto and possibly you?

  • More homes and jobs in Toronto Harbour, generating billions of dollars for the economy.
  • Cool and new technology with cameras and sensors for increased safety and energy efficiency, but alongside comes data and privacy implications for our personal data.
  • Elevating Toronto’s position as an Innovation and Technology hub and leader.

Some officials, watchdog groups and advocates are wary of what these could all mean, and some are predicting why the Sidewalk Labs project may not happen.

Here are a few links to provide you highlights to get you up to speed on the Sidewalk Labs project.
