Future of Cities: Connecting Canadian Municipalities with Canadian Innovation

November 22, 2022

Mapping out the next steps to building the future for Canadian cities.

Our cities are facing enormous challenges. But with those challenges come enormous opportunities.

That’s because Canada is home to some of the world’s most talented innovators. Canadian tech founders are equipped to not only solve the challenges our cities are facing, but to completely reimagine and rebuild them to be more equitable, liveable, affordable, digitally advanced, and sustainable.

To ensure these high-tech solutions are buildable, and to ensure they respond directly to the practical needs of Canadians, founders and municipalities must work together closely.

That’s why Communitech has spent the last 12 months bringing tech founders, industry partners, and government leaders together through the Future of Cities Collaborative. Through a series of discussions, workshops, and interviews, we've defined the challenges and uncovered their potential solutions.

Join us on November 22 as we showcase what the Future of Cities Collaborative has accomplished, and map out the next steps to building the future for Canadian cities.

Panel 1: Data-Driven City Management

Data allows city officials to monitor their assets for carbon emissions, public safety, performance, and warning signs of any vulnerabilities. But citizen trust and data maturity are key ingredients to leveraging it. How can cities and founders work together to power data maturity and build citizen trust, especially among vulnerable populations, to get the most out of their data?

Panel 2: Building Smart Mobility Systems

New approaches to mobility can transform our cities for the better. Advanced mobility solutions can unlock the potential for 15-minute cities, connectivity between rural areas and urban centers, and expand access to high-income employment opportunities. How can local governments collaborate with startups and scale-ups to get the most effective solutions into the country’s urban centers and scale them?
