This fall Memorial University will host the first-of-its-kind conference in Canada focused exclusively on small and medium-sized cities (SMCs) around the world. Urban scholars and professionals are invited to come together to St. John's, the capital of Newfoundland and Labrador, to present, learn, and discuss the opportunities and challenges facing the contemporary small city. We welcome research and projects on SMCs across four themes: equity and inclusiveness, sustainability and adaptability, policy and governance, and demography and immigration.
