As the COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated the depth of intersecting structural inequities in the United States and Canada, it has further clarified that the epicentre of solutions, innovation and urgent support live at the municipal level. How can we ensure that COVID-19 recovery strategies enable communities to address their vulnerabilities, and come back stronger than before?
