The Cities of Toronto, Mississauga, and Cambridge, along with the Town of Innisfil, were among the big winners at the Municipal Information Systems Association (MISA) Ontario chapter’s annual conference Monday night.

Two of the chapter’s Excellence in Municipal Systems awards, honouring the province’s top smart cities projects, were presented to the City of Toronto for two separate initiatives, while the other winners received one award each.

Other winners included City of Windsor CIO Harry Turnbull, who received a Lifetime Membership Award, and the Town of Innisfil, which received the conference’s coveted People’s Choice Award in addition to its Excellence in Municipal Systems award.

“I’m so proud of every one of the winners,” MISA Ontario president Connie McCutcheon told ITBusiness.ca. “This is what MISA is all about – getting excited and sharing your story so that others can build off the work that you’ve done.”

The Excellence in Municipal Systems award winners were judged by a panel made up of representatives from various municipalities, who were forced to choose between what MISA Ontario staff called “a record number” of digital transformation initiatives.

As MISA Ontario past president Christine Swenor put it when introducing the Excellence in Municipal Systems award winners, participants were judged based on how well their initiatives supported their city’s strategic objectives; the degree to which they demonstrated an improvement in service delivery to clients, citizens, or businesses; and their level of collaboration between IT and other city departments.

“It was a tough decision… because they’re all so high calibre, and what’s great is that we can learn from all of them,” Swenor said.
