Our City Partners

City of Vancouver

City of Vancouver

City of Vancouver is one of CityStudio’s founding partners. We have a core team of City of Vancouver Advisors and have worked with over 150 staff across a range of departments and teams, including the Sustainability Group, Cultural Services, Planning, Engineering, Elections, Park Board and the Vancouver Economic Commission.

Work with Us

Do you work at the City of Vancouver? Looking for outside-the-box thinking? Students are a great resource in the city and we’d be happy to connect you with them through a CityStudio course. Key things to note:

  • Most CityStudio collaborations are in the fall (September to December) and spring (January to April).
  • Collaborations require a 10 hour commitment – more if the project is complex.
  • This includes a project scoping meeting, 3 term touch-points, attendance at HUBBUB and a final debrief.

A number of CityStudio-supported hubs have also launched including CityLAB in Hamilton, ON.

Launch your own

Cities looking to launch their own CityStudio are invited to attend Art of Cities, our four-day conference that provides in-depth training for what is needed to build and launch a CityStudio in a new city. We also have a number of other services available to cities.
