Andrew Grenville, Chief Research Officer of Vision Critical and its public affairs practice Angus Reid Public Opinion, will present the findings of trailblazing municipal research this week at The Innovation City conference in Toronto.
More than half of the world’s population now lives in cities. By 2035, this proportion will rise to three-in-four people. How we build, design, govern and work in our cities today will define our future for generations to come. The Innovation City, an event designed and created by CityAge Media and organized in partnership with the MaRS Discovery District, brings together North America’s leading city builders to explore the new ideas, technologies and partnerships to build the 21st-Century city.
Angus Reid Public Opinion has conducted numerous surveys on municipal issues for clients and the public, including detailed looks at amalgamation in Montreal, transit issues in Toronto, and the Stanley Cup riot in Vancouver.
As part of its participation in the conference, Angus Reid Public Opinion conducted two separate surveys: a poll of residents of each one of Canada’s four major urban centres—Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and Montreal—to review observations about services and quality of life; and a study of Canadians, Americans and Britons focusing on perceptions about Toronto.
The full findings will be presented at The Innovation City on Jul. 19 at 3:15 pm, at the MaRS Discovery District in Toronto.
