Symposium Summaries

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.

The Future of Canada Project Symposium, held at the Forum on November 2, was an opportunity to explore the impact of the Future of Canada Project’s 14 supported research initiatives, as well as two Future Fellows’ projects.

These diverse initiatives span healthcare, reconciliation, democratic resilience, senior well-being, systemic racism, and other topics that must be addressed when looking to Canada’s future.

Moderated by Donald Abelson, Academic Director of Wilson College for Leadership and Civic Engagement, Forum delegates had the opportunity to engage with McMaster University’s interdisciplinary experts as they discussed Canada’s evolution and the imperative challenges that lie ahead.
