The Thematic Meeting for Habitat III will be held in Montreal, Canada, in October 2015, with a theme of metropolitan areas as part of the preparation for Habitat III in Quito in 2016.

The Government of Canada, together with the Government of Québec, the Network of Metropolitan Areas of the Americas (RAMA) and METROPOLIS, the Communauté métropolitaine de Montréal (CMM) has committed to contribute to the process leading to Habitat III so as to advocate and develop the New Urban Agenda.

The Montréal Declaration on Metropolitan Areas, which will be adopted in Montreal in October 2015, is expected to play a key role in developing the New Urban Agenda from a perspective of sustainable development of cities in its social, environmental, cultural and economic dimensions.
