The Urban Futures Institute is where it all began. Founded in 1996 by David Baxter, this non-profit membership society sought to provide objective analysis of how demographic and economic change was affecting Canadian communities.
Today, the Institute continues to operate under the assumption that good decisions can only be made using good information produced through independent, objective research. We publish several detailed research papers per year, as well as a new series of shorter monthly reports that explore economic and demographic issues, questions, and trends. The Institute’s research reflects a wide range of interests from demographics, health care, and housing, to economic change, consumer behaviour, and labour force dynamics, as well as community and regional planning and change.
