The Canadian Urban Institute is a non-profit applied research organization dedicated to achieving healthy urban development.
Since 1990, we have been working to cultivate solutions for the built environment that balance human, ecological and economic impacts.
We accomplish this by helping the public and private sectors: build capacity for informed, creative decisions; shape public policy; and implement the best community practices.
Through our work, we generate insights and recommendations to inspire action in communities across Canada and internationally.
