Manitoba's capital is snatching up another prestigious title, this time for its digital brains.

The Intelligent Community Forum (ICF) has named Winnipeg this year's World’s Top Intelligent Community. This award is bestowed onto a community for its competitiveness in the digital economy.

"For years, Winnipeg has been a powerhouse of connectivity, innovation, creativity, and culture on the Canadian prairies," Mayor Brian Bowman says in a video, noting that reconciliation is an important part of this. "This recognition from ICF is very meaningful to our city and the people who have worked tirelessly to improve our community and raise its profile on the global stage."

Bowman says they were thrilled to be nominated in the top seven, excited to take the top title. 

Reasons for the nomination include in-person services and events shifting online, online library access, online permits, and adopting open data programs.

"Open data program demonstrates our commitment to open government and supports better decisions for our community, economy, and the environment," Director of Innovation and Technology Services Tyler Gooch says in a statement.

Earlier this year, TIME named Winnipeg as one of the greatest places in the world.
