The University of Toronto is a leader in research and innovation, with significant impact both locally and globally. Our outstanding research scholars are committed to understanding and solving the challenges that face us today - and look forward to what is possible for the future.


The 21st century has been referred to as the “urban century.” For the first time in history, the majority of the world’s population lives in urban areas, posing significant opportunities and challenges for our cities – not to mention the governments charged with making daily decisions that will be felt for decades.

On May 28, the University of Toronto’s School of Cities will bring together urban thought leaders, policy-makers, planners, community advocates and business leaders to address the challenge of governing cities in the midst of change.
