Mayors are among the most important, and least understood, leaders in Canadian politics.

The Mayors Project is the first broad study of urban mayors in Canada. It examines the role of the mayor in ten Canadian cities - the largest in each province - to understand the role, how it varies, and what this means for the success of our cities and our country. The project is about building a uniquely Canadian understanding of the role of the mayor, and seeking new insights into the nature of political leadership in Canada’s cities.

During the summer of 2016, The Mayors Project traveled across Canada to meet with mayors and the people who work most closely with them. It was quite a ride, and you can read all about right here.

The findings of the project will be released in early 2017. In the meantime, check out the blog and keep in touch.
