About

What’s next for resilient cities.

More than a year into the pandemic, and what have we learned? What’s next for our communities?

We know we can’t go back to the status quo. This moment in time asks that we show up in new, innovative ways for ourselves and for each other. We must build a shared vision for what recovery and resilience might look like across Canada. The pressing issues our communities face are complex. Let’s tackle them together.

Join us for The Summit. A space and a place to connect across sectors. Each month, discover new approaches, tools and wisdom you need to adapt and accelerate solutions for your own community

Each event will feature insights from seven key themes of city building, from Climate Change Adaptation to Smart Cities and Housing.

Together, we can build a bold, bright future.

The Summit creates the opportunity to connect, discuss and advance solutions for our communities.

Convened by Evergreen, and hosted by Future Cities Canada, The Summit is the annual, must-attend gathering of city builders that harnesses the momentum for change already in progress in cities. By bringing together people, ideas, platforms and innovations from across sectors, we address inequality and climate change, and their impact on our cities.

Future Cities Canada is an initiative founded by Evergreen, McConnell Foundation, TD Bank Group, Maison de l’innovation sociale and Community Foundations of Canada.
