As a fast growing urbanized nation, Canada’s cities are uniquely positioned to show the world how to drive sustainable and livable urban growth beyond the pandemic.
Canadian cities need to harness digital transformation at the same time as we build Net Zero urban economies. That means investing in smart mobility solutions, personalized government services, equitable workforce development, smart financing tools, and smart digital and physical infrastructure.
We can build cities that meet the needs of people of all ages, cultures, incomes, and physical abilities, while taking meaningful steps towards carbon neutrality. And we can show the rest of the world how to do it too.
CityAge Canada will galvanize the creators, investors, builders and policy-shapers who are reimagining how we build, live and work within our cities. Join us on June 28 as we begin building the future of Canadian cities.
