CANN Forecast is a Quebec startup specialized in the field of artificial intelligence for sustainable water management.
CANN Forecast was founded by the winning team of the AquaHacking Challenge in 2016. AquaHacking is a competition aimed at finding solutions for sustainable water management in Quebec. It was with its InteliSwim fecal coliform water concentration prediction tool that CANN Forecast stood out. CANN Forecast was then mandated by the City of Montreal to apply InteliSwim to a beach.
A year later, the City of Montreal asked CANN Forecast to develop a new model to predict pipe failures. This is how the InteliPipes model was born. Since then, CANN Forecast has been working with many Canadian and French municipalities to predict sewer and water main breaks, and beach fecal coliform contamination. CANN Forecast is constantly trying to distinguish itself and innovate in the water industry.
Our dynamic and multidisciplinary team develop innovative tools to assist our clients in adopting new technologies in order to reduce water waste and understand their impact on the environment. We do everything with our core values of Collaboration, Innovation, Passion, Hard Work, Transparency, and Growth.
