Future City

In partnership with MASS LBP, a trailblazing public consultation firm, Future City brought together a panel of 44 randomly selected Toronto residents, one from each city ward, to explore the implications of growing polarization in Toronto in the fall of 2011. In a series of sessions over the course of a month, the panelists learned about and discussed the three very different cities within Toronto. At the end of the consultation, a series of recommendations compiled by the panelists was published to the public. These recommendations can be found here

Future City was launched at Scotiabank Nuit Blanche 2011, in an independent project called Public Display of Democracy: The Three Cities Dialogue.

Future City is part of Deeper Dialogues, made possible by the generous support of the Metcalf Foundation’s 50th Anniversary Grants and Citizenship and Immigration Canada through Inter-Action.
