Our Future Hamilton Summit

Cancellation of 2020 Our Future Hamilton Annual Summit

Council approved the 25-year Our Future Hamilton Community Vision in 2017, with input from 55,000 stakeholders and six community priorities. Since 2017, the Our Future Hamilton (OFH) Annual Summit brings together over 450 residents, partners and stakeholders to explore a community priority. Every year we look forward to hosting this event, which has become one of the largest public engagement summits in Canada. However, given the continued concerns posed by COVID-19, we’ve made the very difficult decision to cancel this year’s event.

This was not an easy call to make, but we know it was the best decision as we need to prioritize the health and safety of our event attendees, volunteers, employees and everyone who helps to support this important community engagement event. We considered other options on ways to safely host the 2020 OFH Summit, however it’s important for us to host an inclusive event and it didn’t feel right to hold the Summit in a virtual setting. We look forward to seeing you all again in-person when this virus is no longer a threat and it’s safe to do so.

Public Engagement

In the meantime, please know that we remain committed to making the City’s community vision a reality and encourage everyone to stay in touch and engaged. One way you can do that is by visiting Engage Hamilton, the City’s new interactive online space. It’s a great way for you to learn about important City initiatives, share your feedback and engage with the community. Visit
