About SFU Public Square

SFU Public Square, a signature initiative designed to spark, nurture and restore community connections, establishes Simon Fraser University as the go-to convener of serious and productive conversations about issues of public concern.

More than a single place or program, SFU Public Square assembles the hearts, minds, and talents of diverse communities to promote inclusive, intelligent, and inspiring dialogue. SFU Public Square events and offerings proclaim SFU’s vision to be Canada’s leading community-engaged research university.

The SFU Public Square will host an annual Community Summit to investigate—and recommend practical solutions to—pressing issues in BC and Canada. The first Community Summit, Alone Together: Connecting in the City, was held in September 2012 on the theme of isolation and disconnection in the urban environment. For our second Community Summit, we explored issues regarding BC's economic future. In the most recent 2014 Community Summit, Innovation-The Shock of the Possible, the complex topic of Innovation was explored through various lenses including; health care, economy, environment, and education.
