CivicLabTO: Collaboration in Action

About CivicLabTO

CivicLabTO is a city building knowledge exchange platform shared between the City of Toronto and eight academic institutions in the city. Its purpose is to unite subject matter experts and municipal leaders, sparking conversation, learning and collaboration on important civic issues. Through sharing insights and resources, members of the CivicLabTO partnership contribute to valuable cross-sectoral dialogue, ultimately creating greater urban research and training opportunities at local colleges and universities, and strengthening informed decision making and policy at the municipal level.

Toronto Metropolitan University has been a strong partner in this initiative since its inception in 2021, collaborating on delivering the common course curriculum to students, partnering on research projects led by the City of Toronto, preparing a report on the inaugural summit, and advancing partnership activities. In 2023, TMU was proud to co-host, with Centennial College, the second biennial CivicLabTO symposium on November 15, at the Progress Campus of Centennial College in Scarborough.
