Future Cities Canada Summit 2020: Fast Forward
October 15 - 17, 2020 in Toronto, Ontario!

Fast Forward to the future we want and need in cities.

The Summit brings to together leaders and innovators from across sectors to connect and discuss the big, bold ideas that will reshape our cities.

We’re launching ticket sales soon! Be the first to find out this year's speakers and receive an additional 10% off the early bird pricing by signing up here.

In a matter of mere weeks, we have experienced unprecedented disruption in how we live, play, work and connect with each other. 

This kind of disruption signals a realization of our interconnectedness and that we all have a role to play in how our cities respond. Across the globe, we are each being asked to take extraordinary actions for community benefit. This may be one of the greatest tests in how we succeed in moving forwards collectively. 

We are continuing to monitor COVID 19 and will be adjusting our program delivery as required. But rest assured, solving these pressing issues has never been more important than right now.

What we heard from 2019 attendees:

“The Summit brings forward-thinking leaders and ideas together, and this combination can advance new, transformative, inclusive solutions we need.”

“The Summit made connections between similar complementary idea environments—from Nunavut to Mexico City on the ground—to UN globalists in the sky. Radical systems changes require this kind of diverse collaboration.”

“The insights I gained from the various communities and initiatives was something that would have taken years for me to look for and learn about on my own. I appreciate the synthesis the Summit provided.”

The Future Cities Canada Summit is leading the way in accelerating innovation that can transform our communities across the country.

Attendees share best practices, innovative solutions and real-life success stories with 25 sessions, featuring small workshops with industry leaders and creative networking opportunities.
