Issues Affecting Mid-Sized Cities
Canada is over 80% urbanized. Our cities face issues that are changing the way they provide services, finance operations and govern residents. These issues not only impact urban Canada, but are vital to the national economy. The School of Public Policy has embarked on a major program in urban research to provide an objective and evidence-based assessment of urban policies in mid-sized cities and metropolitan areas (500,000 to 2,000,000 residents). By challenging pre-conceived notions and special interests, we will generate practical solutions.
Join The School of Public Policy for this inaugural urban policy symposium on “Issues Affecting Mid-Size Cities”. Explore a range of policy issues including infrastructure development, the role of public-private partnerships, intermunicipal and intergovernmental relationships as well as factors driving urban growth.
