Started in Vancouver, CityStudio is a replicable and adaptable partnership model that aims to facilitate collaboration between academic institutions and municipal governments through an inter-institutional partnership framework. Our Vancouver program – CityStudio Vancouver – is the founder of our growing, 14-member network of CityStudios in our Global division, which celebrates its fifth anniversary in 2021.
Under this program, CityStudio Global licenses cities across Canada and around the world to operate their own CityStudio program – operating much like a social franchising model. New CityStudios join the CityStudio Network community to receive training and access to materials and processes, and to learn from each other and share promising practices.
With the strategic aims of 1) robust local programming and partnerships, 2) sharing of the CityStudio model towards a movement that grows around the world; and 3) defining our role in the network of global actors, our 100-year vision creates engaged and energized municipalities worldwide where city builders, planners, faculty and students are actively engaged in the co-creation of our municipalities.
To date, thirteen municipalities besides Vancouver have adopted the CityStudio model of city-campus collaboration, including Abbotsford, BC; Victoria, BC; North Vancouver, BC; Chilliwck, BC; Brantford, ON; Waterloo, ON; London, ON; Durham, ON; Montreal, QC; Corner Brook, NL; Logan, Australia; Bendigo, Australia; and Oslo, Norway.
