SDG Cities - Canada Country Report 2024

UN-Habitat’s SDG Cities Canada Report marks a groundbreaking national initiative, showcasing how cities across the country are localizing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This report offers a unique perspective, analyzing national statistics through the lens of city-specific indicators from UN-Habitat’s Global Urban Monitoring Framework (UMF). These indicators have been meticulously refined and tailored to address the unique challenges faced by Canadian cities. 

The report features regional summaries of progress and, most notably, presents 14 compelling case studies that highlight the diverse and dynamic efforts of cities across Canada in advancing a wide range of sustainable development goals. The cities highlighted in the report are: Calgary, Oakville, Halifax, Saanich, Guelph, Toronto, Montreal, Edmonton, Kelowna, Thunder Bay, Kitchener, Burlington, Gibsons, and Winnipeg. Finally, the report presents the work of four Canadian city networks that are building capacity for accelerated action.
