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?

During this time, the most pressing issues that cities and communities face – housing affordability, climate change, racial justice, mental wellness, income inequality, access to nature – are intensified.   

We know it is of utmost importance to bring leaders and innovators from across sectors to tackle these issues and share the inspiration and optimism needed to create a more resilient and sustainable future, together.  

Led by Evergreen and hosted by Future Cities Canada, #UnexpectedSolutions is a collaborative platform that harnesses the momentum for change already in progress in cities. By bringing together people, ideas, platforms and innovations from across sectors, we address inequality and climate change, and their impact on our cities.

As a convener, Future Cities Canada is hosting a season of #UnexpectedSolutions. Tap into the tools, workshops, and wisdom from across Canada and around the world. 

2020 is a year of change. This critical work starts with us and within our own organizations. Learn more.

The Network’s Virtual Collision Days are match-matching and capacity-building events that connect emerging technology companies with community leaders. Through these virtual regionally-focused events across the country, start-ups will get the valuable feedback so critical in the early development stages, while community leaders will have the chance to preview the technologies under development that may help serve the needs of their residents.

Through peer-to-peer knowledge exchange and access to key resources on topics related to the future of smart cities, participants will gain valuable tools and create the important connections to advance their community’s needs.

Focus areas include such topics as security, data, procurement, governance, resiliency, and public engagement, to be applied to the unique challenges identified in each region.
