Welcome to City Building Ryerson
As the global population becomes increasingly concentrated in urban centres, the health of our cities will have a profound impact on the success of our species. The stakes have never been higher. From climate change to population growth to a new pandemic, the challenges are as tremendous...as are the opportunities. It's possible to build a better future. In fact, we’re already doing so.
Urban research with global reach
With our collective future tied to the fate of cities, Ryerson research is devoted to the key issues that will define them. Our faculty are making decisive contributions in an array of fields. Just as urban health has never been more urgent, the work of our researchers has never been more important.
