Résumé

Bringing together some of the most respected scholars in the discipline, Canadian Urban Regions: Trajectories of Growth and Change is an innovative exploration of current trends and developments in urban geography. Combining theoretical perspectives with contemporary insights, the text reveals how the economic welfare of Canada is increasingly determined by the capacity of its cities to function as sites of innovation, creativity, skilled labour formation, specialized production, and global-local interaction. The text moves from building a contextual framework, on to practical case studies about evolving political, economic, and urban changes in five of Canada's major cities - Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Calgary, and Vancouver - before finally moving on to a discussion of the future of the discipline.
