cities

Do you live in one of our 27 cities and work in the non-profit, corporate or government sectors? Our vibrant network of urban researchers are looking for key informants from each city to learn more about their city and complement our other research findings. If you are keen to chat about your city and support our young people, check out our work page for more information or connect with us here to sign up to be interviewed.

How well do young people think their city is doing on the issues that matter to them? We want to know.

From October 13 - December 7, 2020, our Pivot 2020 team will be conducting research about their city to find out. We’ll be working in 27 cities across Canada, surveying young people aged 15-29, interviewing community members, and collecting benchmark information from third party sources to help us understand current perceptions about living, working and playing in our cities and how we can adjust to improve our post-pandemic future.

Learn more about the 27 cities we'll be working in below.
