The New Urban Agenda is often highlighted as a ‘roadmap’ for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in urban contexts. This keynote address broadly summarized Canada’s domestic status on the SDGs, and identified action areas with reference to the New Urban Agenda. Learning outcomes for this session include an enhanced understanding of how Canada is living up to global commitments, and the role of planners and other urban actors in localizing international agendas.
