Future Cities Canada Summit

Realizing the Potential of Cities

November 7–9, Evergreen Brick Works, Toronto

Convened by:

Our cities are changing at an unprecedented rate. It’s time to harness the momentum of new ideas, new technologies, new leadership and new opportunities for participation to create cities of the future.

Cities that are thriving. Cities that are equitable. Cities that are regenerative. Cities that are prosperous. Flourishing cities for all.

Realize the potential of cities at the Future Cities Canada Summit.

The Summit brings together urban leaders and city builders from across sectors to reimagine our futures, scale innovations and build new opportunities for collaboration.

This three-day gathering is an opportunity to shape a new urban agenda by tackling critical questions in new and innovative ways. Questions such as: How do we leverage data and tech to solve new city challenges and make cities smarter than ever before? And how do we truly create inclusive and participatory cities that recognize the original stewards of the land and newcomers from across the globe?

The Summit will fuel real solutions to urban challenges through:

  • Interactive discussions with local, national and international city builders
  • Hands-on workshops and one-on-one access to presenters and Summit leaders
  • Sessions focused on cross-sector collaboration to enable innovation in our cities
  • On-site exploration and field trips across the region exploring topics from Indigenous placemaking to low-carbon infrastructure
  • Sharing of tools, knowledge and connections to impact positive change in our communities

D’autres renseignements vous seront fournis au sujet des activités offertes en français et des occasions d’entrer en contact avec les conférenciers et les participants francophones.
