This is an outstanding city.
But you don't just take.
You've got to build.

Canadian Urban Institute

Canadian Urban Institute (CUI) has a mission to build wisdom and inspire leadership for healthy urban development. CUI does this by providing applied research, education/training and communication to improve the processes and policies needed to make informed decisions about urban assets. CUI’s current mandate to use its expertise in hosting high impact events to engage and inspire more of the city’s youth – the next generation of city builders, community organizers and citizens – with the launch of Project YU (Project Youth Urban Issues Education). Adding to the successes of its long-running Youth Intern Program, this initiative will help to better engage more young people in meaningful conversations about urban issues.
