The Leacross Foundation is proud to support the Future City Competition in Canada. Future City is a project-based learning program where students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades imagine, research, design, and build cities of the future.
Canadian teams are for the first time participating in the Future City competition with participants gearing up in Ontario, and Prince Edward Island. This expansion is made possible through the support of Engineers Canada, the Durham District School Board, Engineers PEI and the University of Prince Edward Island.
Engineers Canada was able to bring the Future City Competition to Canada thanks to the generous contributions of the competition’s Canadian sponsors: TD Insurance Meloche-Monnex, Great-West Life, Manulife, the Durham District School Board, the Leacross Foundation, Engineers of Tomorrow, Engineer-in-Residence, Engineers PEI, the University of Prince Edward Island and the University of Ontario Institute Of Technology. Numerous volunteers, educators and STEM professionals have also kindly contributed their time and expertise to serve as mentors, judges and organizers to ensure that the participating students enjoy a truly valuable experience.
