When many think about building with Indigenous populations in mind, it’s far beyond our city limits — consent and duty to consult for infrastructure projects in the far northern reaches of our province and remote regions across the country. But Toronto is home to the largest population of Indigenous peoples in Canada. When we build for our city, we are building for Indigenous peoples.
The Urban Land Institute, in partnership with Enterprise, is opening a discussion with Indigenous leaders, city planners and developers, on the cultural moment that brings Indigenous consultation to the forefront of our growing cityscape, and to explore how planning, design and development can better incorporate our local Indigenous minds and voices into development processes.
The above topics will be explored the morning of November 26, 2019 at the Globe and Mail Centre through a keynote address by JP Gladu, President and CEO of the Canadian Council for Aboriginal Business, followed by panel discussions with community leaders and industry experts.
