The aim is to continue the city’s efforts to improve quality of life and services in Québec City.

“This international event is an opportunity to discuss the importance of data for cities’ prosperity and sustainability,” said Mayor Juneau. “The WCCD Open City Data Portal, applicable to any city, no matter its size or geographical location, allows more than forty cities around the world, including Toronto, Boston, London, and Shanghai to compare data and analyze trends.”
