Canada's cities are re-defining themselves. From innovative and eco-friendly building strategies to the development of “smart” infrastructure that can be monitored and controlled remotely, Canada has sought to place itself at the forefront of urban futures. These trends have given rise to a great deal of concern over what the future will hold: Will future technological changes improve the quality of life in Canada, or usher in a new age of surveillance, a lack of privacy and inequality?

Panelists will comment on the trajectory of Canadian urban development, offering their perspectives on maximizing the benefits of urban technology and on planning for a diverse, growing urban population.
