Workshops & Webinars

Connecting London: Laying a Smart City Foundation with LED Streetlights Webinar 2018

In February 2018, the Canadian Urban Institute examined the City of London, UK’s ambitious and forward-thinking LED streetlight program in the LSNetwork webinar. We were joined by Alanna Coombes, Place and Future Officer at the City of London UK, along with leaders of the City's smart streetlighting program, who provided an analysis of the development, implementation and success of the initiative as well as insight into:

  • How the business case/value proposition was developed;
  • The main objective of the system; and,
  • The main challenges to implementation and how they were overcome.

Watch the recording of this webinar to find out how smart lights will help the City achieve its energy saving goals, reduce operational costs while improving service reliability and laying the foundations for future IoT aspirations.

Excess Soil By-Law Tool Webinar 2017

In February 2017, 100+ viewers tuned in to learn about the Canadian Urban Institute's (CUI) recently launched Excess Soil By-Law Tool, a resource that promotes the beneficial reuse of excess soil through municipal by-laws. 

The tool provides links to municipal site alteration and fill by-laws in Southern Ontario and guidance about how to address common issues through municipal by-laws including: permits, fill management plans, fees and cost recovery, and more.

CUI was joined by Sanjay Coelho, a Senior Policy Analyst at the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change, who shared information regarding Ontario's new Excess Soil Management Policy Framework.
