The Council for Canadian Urbanism (CanU) hosts annual Summits in cities throughout Canada. This years Summit, CanU11 Urban Renaissance, will be hosted by the City of Hamilton. CanU Summits have been made  largely possible through the help of volunteers. 

CanU is offering to provide full registration to all sessions to a limited number of university students in return for several hours of volunteer time leading up to and during the Summit. Young professionals are also welcome to volunteer and will be provided with registration for the days they volunteer and a reduced rate ($70.00 per day) for each of the other days.

All volunteers will be responsible for their own travel arrangements, accommodations and other expenses.
