We Are Cities

We Are Cities | Mobilizing Canadians to shape our urban future

We Are Cities is a new campaign engaging Canadians across the country to shape a vision and action plan for how we can build livable cities—healthy places to live, work and play. We Are Cities is bringing people’s ideas together and building on the city-focused initiatives that are already taking place across the country.

Since launching in February 2015, We Are Cities has made some great progress. The campaign has support from Canadians in every province and territory, there have been over 50 roundtables in 25 cities across 10 provinces and over 175 ideas have been submitted online.

The ideas coming out of the campaign have been inspiring and created the opportunity to take immediate local action to improving our cities. That’s why we created the We Are Cities: Community Innovation Grant—a new funding opportunity that will support local projects addressing issues critical to the success of our communities.

It’s not too late to get involved in We Are Cities. Join the campaign and contribute to building better Canadian cities by visiting the website.
