Non-profit organization CivicAction is calling on all Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area residents to serve up their ideas for action on big urban challenges as part of its CivicDish campaign this March.

Over the next 31 days, the campaign is aiming to have hundreds of residents host or participate in CivicDish events of all shapes, sizes and tastes.

“We live in a great city, one that repeatedly makes top 10 lists — be it most livable, most highly educated or most diverse,” said Zabeen Hirji, chair of CivicAction. “We want residents from all walks of life to join us to share their ideas for building inclusive prosperity so all our residents can thrive.“


To participate, residents simply sign up to host a CivicDish event at and download an easy-to-follow tool kit containing key facts, discussion questions and instructions on how to report back ideas.

CivicDish comes in the lead up to Canvas, CivicAction’s 2019 summit in April, a once-every-four-years event that brings together hundreds of leaders from across sectors, communities and backgrounds to crowdsource a new regional city-building agenda and action plan.
