Future Cities Canada, a national cross-sector initiative led by Evergreen and designed to accelerate innovation to transform cities, is hosting its 2022 [Place+Space]: Powering Our Housing Future. The virtual gathering will bring together residents with companies and public sector innovators to engage on the latest solutions that create more resilient and affordable housing.

“[Place + Space] is an event that will connect today’s building innovation with people across sectors who need to take action towards more resilient and affordable housing in Canada,” says Lois Lindsay, chief program officer at Evergreen. “We know that housing is so much more than a building with four walls. The Forum is a critical moment to build on our shared ambition for the future of housing to create inclusive, regenerative communities where everyone can thrive.”

The virtual event will include several sessions and networking channels, touching on such themes as:

  • Anti-racism, diversity and inclusion.
  • Building partnerships and engaging communities.
  • Building scalable, affordable and resilient homes.

Scheduled speakers include Angela Cooke, B.C.’s associate deputy minister for housing, construction standards; Angela Schleihauf, senior analyst, policy and innovation with Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC),multiculturalism and anti-racism; and Steve Paikin, host of TVO’s “The Agenda.”
