Seizing on the potential of new technologies can move Canada toward a sustainable future
Date:6/17/2014

tribution, reducing costs for operators and consumers, and ensuring reliability of service.

  • Smart motors that could make manufacturing equipment and processes more efficient, reducing GHG emissions, and decreasing operating costs.

  • ICT-based irrigation systems that could improve water efficiency and change how food is moved from farm to table.

    The Panel concluded that the power of these ICTs can be unleashed through open data policies ‎and by improving connectivity. Open data can foster collaboration that can lead to the development of transformative solutions. Fast and reliable access to broadband networks is fundamental to all opportunities and will help to maintain Canada's competitiveness with other advanced economies.

    "This forward-looking report highlights a range of technological opportunities, applications, and practices from Canada and around the world," said Elizabeth Dowdeswell, President of the Council of Canadian Academies. "In addition, it offers insights about building an interconnected and sustainable future."

    This report comes at the request of Environment Canada, which asked the Council to assemble a multidisciplinary expert panel to assess the existing or potential opportunities for ICTs to contribute to a "greener" Canada. The Panel focused on a three-pillared concept of sustainability, which encompasses economic, social, and environmental benefits.
