The Forum in collaboration with the Centre on Governance of the University of Ottawa has published The Unimagined Canadian Capital: Challenges for the Federal Capital Region (ed) Rupak Chattopadhyay and Gilles Paquet. The publication is the outcome of a colloquium held on January 28-29, 2011. The colloquium gathered some thirty experts and practitioners to reflect on the challenges facing Canada’s federal capital region. A particular focus lies on issues such as trans-border integration, governance and financing the capital region and on the ways these concerns might best be met. The publication aims to inspire discussions by the governing institutions of the federal capital region and the citizens of Canada locally and nationally. It attempts to identify promising avenues to improve the structure and performance of the federal capital region.
