ICF CANADA'S COMMITTEES

Technical Committee

Chaired by Campbell Patterson, of Kingston, Ontario, the “Technical Committee” was formed in 2015 to stimulate discussion and begin to give ICF Canada some directions on topics of technical interest such as ICF Canada’s definition of broadband - the first indicator in the ICF intelligent community model and the critical enabler of the intelligent community.

Most recently it develop an official policy paper of ICF Canada recognizing broadband as an essential utility and a human right of all Canadians. It continues to meet to discuss other topics, such as the role of the Internet of Things, Artifical Intelligence, Robotics, Driverless Vehicles, etc. This exciting and hands-on committee is open only to qualified ICF Canada members.
