Our CUI x Local series shines a spotlight on community-driven responses to some of the most pressing challenges in Canada’s large urban regions. In collaboration with local leaders, we’re on a cross-Canada listening tour to seek out the very best ideas that can inform and be adapted by city builders across the country. And what we’re seeing are solutions that demonstrate creative, sometimes risky, yet ever-inspiring approaches that haven’t received enough national attention — yet.
Windsor Blooms sums up what Windsorites told us is happening in their city today. We heard diverse perspectives on what it’s like to live there, what people are concerned about, how they view the city and its institutions and how they are coping with and driving change. People from the arts, academia, business and industry, community agencies, municipal government and many other sectors told us what they see as their successes, where they think more work is needed and what their hopes are for a post-pandemic future.
