Let’s stand up for the cities we want.

Canada’s future quality of life and prosperity are directly tied to the health and vitality of our cities.
We are an urban nation; we cannot afford to ignore our urban areas by implementing policies that hurt cities and the people who live in and around them.
We Are Cities engaged Canadians across the country to shape the We Are Cities Action Agenda – ideas that will build empowered, healthy and equitable cities.

What's Next?

We Are Cities is about connecting and supporting existing city building movements and will continue to work with organizations across the country to support this important work. In the coming weeks, the Agenda will be shared with the new federal government to discuss how We Are Cities can support tangible opportunities to build the cities we want. Partners are also engaged in order to establish funding support and collective action approaches to implementing the Agenda’s ideas.

Cities, take action! Continue the conversation locally, reconvene your roundtable or participate in 100in1Day to help catalyze and initiate change in your city.
