Events

Learn, connect and engage with other community leaders

We provide advisory and capacity-building resources to support communities of all sizes, in regions across the country.

What's coming up?

Idea camps represent a series of regional events that brings together mid- and senior- level municipal staff and Indigenous leaders to build capacity in the areas of open data, governance and public engagement.

Through expert training, peer-to-peer learning, and applying concepts to local case studies, participants learn about emerging trends, issues and approaches in open smart cities, as well as best practices and lessons learned. Participants will leave with toolkits and practical concepts to advance work locally.

The second annual Future Cities Canada Summit will take place in November 2019, bringing together community leaders and urban innovators from every corner of the country

We offer various types of events

Idea Camps

Idea Camps represent a series of regional events that bring together mid- and senior- level municipal staff and Indigenous leaders to build capacity in the areas of open data, governance and public engagement.

Through expert training, peer-to-peer learning, and applying concepts to local case studies, participants learn about emerging trends, issues and approaches in open smart cities, as well as best practices and lessons learned. Participants will leave with toolkits and practical concepts to advance work locally.

Collision Days

Collision Days build critical evaluation skills within participants by connecting them with technical service providers.

Through these events, start-ups will get the valuable feedback so critical in the early development stages, while community leaders will get the chance to preview the technologies under development that may help serve the needs of their residents.

Participants, including mid- and senior-level municipal staff and Indigenous leaders, will be invited to attend the collision days and bring with them their communities’ specific challenges.

Community Roundtables

Roundtable events bring together local municipal staff and Indigenous leaders in six Indigenous, rural, remote, or northern regions across the country.

Participants exchange key learnings and best practices about emerging trends, issues, and approaches in open smart cities, and create important connections with their peers in similar-sized communities.
