Here's something we already knew but the rest of the world is only no starting to figure out.

Montreal is a smart city.

Actually we're the most intelligent community in the world according to the Intelligent Community Forum ranking.

The cities are judged on how best they represent models of economic and social transformation in the 21st Century.

We earned the top spot in part because of Montreal's Smart City plan, but also due to our focus on the aerospace industry, life sciences, clean tech industries and health technologies.

Plus, the fact that we have more University graduates than any other city in Canada did wonders for our reputation.

Here are the rest of the cities on the list and interestingly enough, Canada took 3 of the top 7 spots. More than any other country in the world:

  1. Montreal, Quebec
  2. Hsinchu County, Taiwan
  3. Muelheim an der Ruhr, Germany
  4. New Taipei City, Taiwan
  5. Surrey, British Columbia
  6. Whanganui, New Zealand
  7. Winnipeg, Manitoba
