About the Forum

When you imagine Canada’s future, what do you see?

From November 1-3, 2023, McMaster and the Future of Canada Project hosted Imagining 2080: A Forum on Canada’s Futures where 150 possibility-minded delegates gathered to collectively explore potential futures for Canada in 2080.

Over the course of three days in Hamilton, Ontario, delegates immersed themselves in a unique and participatory experience where they learned from new visionary voices, contributed to new narratives about the future in 2080 and identified critical next steps in building a brighter future.

Rooted in strategic foresight, this Forum presented an opportunity to imagine deeply aspirational futures of Canada while also identifying the key actions and changes needed to get there.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of the Imagining 2080 Forum.

We continue to process and reflect on the ideas and conversations generated at the Forum and look forward to sharing more in-depth content with you in the coming months. Stay tuned to our social channels and please sign up for our newsletter to stay up-to-date.

In the meantime, we hope this video will provide you with a glimpse into the spirit and experience that was Imagining 2080!
