From its innovation super corridor, to its young, diverse, educated population, the City of Brampton is brimming with potential. ULI Toronto, in partnership with Nordic City Solutions, Ryerson University and the City of Brampton, is hosting a panel discussion at the Rose Theatre. This event will be an opportunity to explore Nordic strategies for city-building and how such strategy can be applied to Brampton, one of Canada's youngest, culturally diverse and the second fastest growing city.
Join Nordic experts from Helsinki, Sweden, and Denmark as they discuss development in terms of mobility, affordable housing, and complete communities. Topics will also include tapping the innovation economy, the transformation of post war suburbs and the simplification of civic operations in dealing more effectively with ‘city building’ and stewardship.
Prior to the panel ULI Toronto is bringing international cuisines to the City of Brampton. Experience the diversity of Brampton for yourself through food and drink from around the world, with food menu orchestrated by nationally-acclaimed CBC food critic, Suresh Doss. Don't miss your chance to meet and network with local and Nordic experts and engage in city-building discussion topics.
