The State of Canada’s Cities Report

The First State of Canada's Cities Report is a call for clear and practical change that considers decision making, policymaking, investment choices, business practices and community norms.

The report, which is now available, was released in Ottawa today at the State of Canada’s Cities Summit at the Shaw Centre encourages us all to be brave and thoughtful in applying what we learned through COVID-19.

We need to quickly adopt and formalize what worked well. We also need to set aside old approaches that have not generated the anticipated benefits, despite our best intentions.

Finally, it is imperative that we challenge ourselves to take the bold steps Canada needs to maximize every possibility that urban life promises.
