Hubs

Hubs build local capacity by providing a platform for learning and collaboration, promoting civic participation in the city building process.

Acting as civic incubators for emerging needs, opportunities and trends, hubs enable inclusive urban innovation by acting as a common ground for residents, organizations and decision makers to meet, discuss and learn together.

Future Cities Canada is building a network of hubs by connecting both new and existing hubs to accelerate innovation in order to create more equitable, regenerative and prosperous cities for all.

Two flagship hubs will anchor our hub network across the country: the TD Future Cities Centre at Evergreen Brick Works in Toronto and Ville d’Avenir at Maison d’innovation sociale in Montreal.

TD Future Cities Centre

The TD Future Cities Centre is a dynamic year-round space at Evergreen Brick Works to showcase and celebrate ideas and solutions on thriving and sustainable cities from across Canada and the world.

Host to exhibits and events such as the Future Cities Canada Summit, the TD Future Cities Centre is where urban thought leaders and city builders can gather, co-create, test and prototype solutions for building inclusive low-carbon cities of the future.

This redeveloped kiln building, the largest historic building at Evergreen Brick Works, is a shining example of both adaptive reuse and low-carbon construction.  Learn more about the Centre. 

Ville d’Avenir

The TD Future Cities Centre will work closely with the second anchor hub in Montreal, Ville d’Avenir at Maison d’innovation sociale to advance a cross-Canadian agenda accelerating collaborative action for Canada’s Urbanization Agenda. Ville d’Avenir at Maison d’innovation sociale will collectively imagine, design and prototype positive social impact projects. Learn more about Ville d’Avenir.
