The way we move around our cities, the way we design our neighbourhoods, and the way we plan infrastructure needs are all impacted by changes in social and cultural norms. Canada will experience significant demographic shifts in the coming years.


Mass migration has become a feature of the modern world. With the number of immigrants in Canada projected to increase by 35 per cent over the next 20 years, urban expansion now requires a more thoughtful approach to infrastructure and neighbourhood developments.

Health and well-being

For many Canadians, health and well-being is becoming a part of daily life. In our increasingly digitally-focused world, however, where obesity rates and loneliness continue to grow as critical issues, a special focus on health and well-being is centre stage.

Changing demands / workforce

"Disruptive technology” such as advancement in robotics, cognitive computing, and workforce augmentation is already changing the way organizations deal with their workforce. However, these changes also bring benefits to society and improve our future lifestyles.

“The future depends on what you do today.”

— Mahatma Gandhi
