Join us from October 28-30, 2019 in Victoria, BC for the eighth annual Livable Cities Forum: Building Better Communities Through Resilience. 

The Livable Cities Forum is being hosted by the City of Victoria in partnership with ICLEI CanadaSHIFT Collaborative, and ACT (the Adaptation to Climate Change Team), SFU. The Forum is a boutique event widely known for its high-caliber interactive sessions and diverse speakers on climate change action.

The impacts of climate change are being felt across social, built, natural, and economic systems in complex, interconnected ways. Now, more than ever, collaborative community-level action is required to build sustainable, healthy, and equitable communities that are resilient to the risks posed by a changing climate and more frequent extreme weather. The 2019 Forum is designed to showcase the importance of taking this synergistic approach to climate change planning and implementation at the local level.


  • A variety of workshops, plenaries, and dynamic sessions highlight how integrated action can enhance the vitality of our communities.
  • Two evenings of delicious local food, networking, and dialogue on building better communities.
  • On October 30, choose from a variety of half-day excursions and workshops in the City of Victoria and surrounding area. Tours will be led by local hosts and will showcase community adaptation and resilience initiatives from across the city.
