CUI is Canada’s Urban Institute and a national platform for Canadian city-building. Comprised of policymakers, urban professionals, civic and business leaders, community activists and academics, CUI’s mission is to build wisdom and inspire leadership for healthy urban development through research, education and storytelling.

CUI x Windsor is the latest in the CUI x Local listening tour of Canadian cities. From June 15 – June 17, CUI will be listening and learning from local stakeholders on their most pressing challenges, and surfacing examples of innovative and locally-driven solutions. The goal is to help deepen understanding of the interconnected and interdependent issues facing urban centres in Canada.
