As a fast-growing urbanized nation, Canada is well-positioned to show the world how to build the future’s urban mobility.
That means investing in new technology and data systems to digitize our transportation networks, as well as building our cities around multimodal hubs that reward density and multiple transportation options.
Exciting new applications exist in smart passenger-data systems to drive efficiency and convenience in transit, as well as digital systems to reduce congestion and speed traffic flow.
And improved mobility - through both technology and transit-oriented development at scale - is how our cities can encourage equality of opportunity for every Canadian, as well as provide options for aging citizens and persons with disabilities.
CityAge: Canada on September 20 will bring together leaders in the public and private sector who are building Canada’s Mobility Future.
Register to join us for this important discussion.
Anchor Welcome and Introduction
Remarks: Gerard Peets, Assistant Deputy Minister, Infrastructure Canada
Presentation: Teara Fraser, LEO / Founder, Iskwew Air
Presentation: Jamie Cameron, Director, Infrastructure Advisory, National Infrastructure Lead for Future Mobility, KPMG Canada
Panel 1: From Pilot to Mainstream: How to Scale New Transportation Technology
Metro regions are excellent test beds for new mobility solutions. Tech pilots benefit from the wide array of users and fleets available, while transit agencies benefit from private-sector innovation. This conversation will look at some of the most innovative pilots happening today, explain how to scale them, as well as what they can teach other regions.
Presentation: Andrew Glass Hastings, Executive Director, Open Mobility Foundation
Panel 2: Urban Design and the Future of Mobility
Transportation builds great cities. Canadian urban regions are investing in new placemaking and urban design strategies that integrate all forms of mobility - from cars through bicycles and mass transit systems. This session will review the vital role of urban design in the future’s mobility.
