On November 8 and 9 in Toronto, we convened 850 city builders from across the world to realize our potential at the 2018 Future Cities Canada Summit.

850 attendees, 121 speakers, 60 volunteers

We heard from more than 120 leaders about their work creating real solutions to the challenges our cities are facing. But we didn’t just listen, we took action. Attendees made real connections and learned new skills in collaborative sessions. These lessons will help us all work together to create more equitable, regenerative and prosperous cities for everyone.

We’re just getting started. To be the first to hear about next year’s Summit and more updates from Future Cities Canada, subscribe to our newsletter.
