The Canadian Urban Institute’s LSNetwork program has been supporting the transition to networked LED streetlights for almost 10 years as LightSavers Canada. Building on this initiative, the LSNetwork helps municipalities in leveraging their connected infrastructure as a platform for intelligent communities.

As a non-profit, non-partisan organization, we work to support this digital transformation by creating and sharing resources and convening conversations between key stakeholders. 

Our Work

LSNetwork has produced over 15 guides, primers and case studies; presented 6 webinars, 3 workshops and our National LED Lighting Summit; created an educational video on Hamilton’s LED streetlight conversion; and enhanced our social media presence.
