Advancing the SDGs in Canada

The University of Calgary is the new host institution for SDSN Canada, effective July 1, 2024. For more information on SDSN Canada, please reach out to the University of Calgary team at

The University of Waterloo founded SDSN Canada in 2018 and served as host until 2024 (read more about our achievements as host).


SDSN Canada is part of a global SDSN movement to build a network of universities, colleges, and knowledge institutions to promote practical solutions for sustainable development. With over 1,700 participating institutions worldwide, SDSN members work together to support action-oriented research to address some of the world’s most pressing problems, including the implementation of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Climate Agreement.

After six years hosting SDSN Canada, the University of Waterloo will transition hosting duties to the University of Calgary, effective July 1, 2024.

We are proud to have been the inaugural host and beyond proud of everything SDSN Canada has been able to accomplish. We believe giving other Canadian institutions the opportunity to lead SDSN Canada will strengthen the network and support the ethos of the SDGs to have distributed and diversified leadership structures.

That's a wrap for Together|Ensemble 2024! This was the sixth year of the conference, bringing together Canadians from all sectors to track the SDGs in Canada. This year marked the first time the conference was held in-person, hosted at the Balsillie School of International Affairs in Waterloo, Ontario. The conference brought together 175 delegates in person, and 600 delegates online to explore the theme of “Innovation for the SDGs”, with a focus on innovations in Sustainable Finance, Future Cities, and AI for Eco-Innovation.
