What is unique and interesting about your city?We are embarking upon an exciting transformation. Our A1Next vision is our answer to a city, and municipalities around the country, that need a reinvention to stay relevant to residents and businesses alike. Our technology “sandbox” will become our greatest asset in the attraction and retention of new residents from home and abroad. It will transform our approach to problem solving and propel us into next generation urban development that mirrors the most progressive cities around the world. Through reimagining our oldest neighborhood and evolving it into a destination for innovation in Canada, we will grow our technology-based business sector and reinvigorate entrepreneurship in our region, becoming the ultimate destination to live, work, and play in the Atlantic Provinces. The Sandbox will emphasize an open-door approach that will engage residents and businesses through access to innovative program development and dedicated support for business owners, while advocating self-sustainability through the operation of a dedicated test bed focused on solving the cities greatest challenges using technology. A1Next will belong to everyone in our City, a home for progression and innovation that will be scalable to the many cities like ours that need a path forward in a changing global landscape.
