Join us as we celebrate urban leadership in Canada
These awards showcase and celebrate individuals, projects and organizations making a profound impact on the quality of life in Canada’s urban regions. Past Urban Champions have included Sheldon Levy, Anne Golden, David Pecaut, Gail Sheryl Asper, Moses Znaimer, John Tory, Phyllis Lambert and Jack Diamond.
This year’s event will be taking place on November 21, 2016 at The Great Hall. Recently reopened after an intensive revitalization, the Great Hall is a fitting backdrop to recognize this year’s Urban Champions and gather past Urban Leadership Award recipients, whose worked helped to establish the foundation of urban excellence in Canada.
In addition to recognizing the 2016 recipients, guests will have the opportunity to explore 21st century urbanism and the relationships we share with our city through dialogue with CUI’s Urban Champions. Following award presentations, award recipients will participate in moderated panels designed to explore new ideas that will inspire the urban agenda for the years ahead.
