AIoT Canada considers the Internet of Things to be a vector of economic and social development essential to the evolution of our society. The extent and scope of this technology domain is such that it is now essential to bring together the skills and capabilities of the best players in the industry and research community if Canada is to maintain its position of leader at the international level.
AIoT Canada has chosen to operate within a governance framework that respects the following core values:
Collaboration is the core value of AIoT Canada. This is a collaboration between industry and research; between provincial associations; between consultants, SMEs and industry groups; it is inter-sectional and transdisciplinary collaboration, even international collaboration.
Integrity and respect
The establishment of an ecosystem connecting many partners imposes a federated governance framework espousing respect for others, integrity of decisions and multiple financial, legal and contractual agreements. AIoT Canada has a responsibility to ensure the integrity and respect within the ecosystem formed by its members.
AIoT Canada is an organization that acts as a catalyst for innovation. Its members aspire to push the boundaries and shape the future of our society through creativity, research, development and technological adaptation.
It has now become impossible to develop an IoT solution without relying on partners who have complementary knowledge and capabilities. Education, training and knowledge sharing are essential to the success of our Mission.
Diversity and inclusion
AIoT Canada promotes diversity and inclusion to drive innovation and growth, to guide us, to unite and inspire us in our day-to-day activities and in our decision-making. We believe that there is a growing need to promote diversity and inclusion, rather than retreating into ourselves.
