The Conference Board of Canada in partnership with CPCS are hosting two roundtables exploring the implications of e-commerce for sustainable urbanism in a post-pandemic context.
With support from Transport Canada, these events build on the work of our Shared Mobility Roundtables and continue a discussion initiated during our recent event exploring the impact of COVID-19 on Canada’s sustainable mobility agenda. Our roundtables provide a unique forum bringing together policymakers from all three levels of government, practitioners, and private sector leaders. Our aim is to share knowledge and collaborate on the most exciting opportunities to re-imagine sustainable city-building in Canada.
Each event includes a moderated panel, and opportunities for broader discussion with attendees. The roundtables are envisioned as forums promoting cross-sectoral dialogue and engagement amongst participants.
Thanks to our support from Transport Canada, we are pleased to host these events free of charge. We invite you to register for one or both events through the registration links below. For additional information, please find the agenda attached.
