Welcome to the Open North Training Center, ONTRaC — a core component of our Community Solutions Network suite of digital transformation resources!
Through the Community Solutions Network, Open North works closely with communities to co-create digital solutions for difficult problems. We help our partners use data and technology in an effective, responsible, and collaborative way. With more than a decade of experience in the field, we have developed extensive expertise in the areas of open smart cities, open procurement, data governance, open data, mobility, and climate action, among other key digital transformation strategies.
The Community Solutions Network, now in its third iteration since its launch in the spring of 2019 alongside the Canadian Smart Cities Challenge, offers — at no cost to communities — comprehensive support for communities interested in developing and implementing digital transformation projects. Through this service we offer communities of practice for collaborative learning and project co-creation, tailored one-on-one advice and consulting, and numerous issue-specific research briefs, guides, toolkits, and learning materials.
ONTraC is a key component in the suite of resources Open North offers and contains both introductory and advanced learning modules on a wide range of digital transformation subjects at no cost!
