In November 2019, more than 700 national and international city builders from across sectors, representing close to 30 municipalities gathered at Evergreen Brick Works in Toronto for the second annual Future Cities Canada Summit.

The Future Cities Canada Summit 2019 explored many topics and ideas within the theme of Catalyzing Community Solutions such as open data, low-carbon infrastructure and civic capital. We heard from more than 100 urban leaders who came together to showcase the possible and build capacity to get innovation right.
