C2Uexpo is a biannual conference that explores the edge of community-college-university partnerships as catalysts for social innovation. Previously hosted by Carleton University (2015) and Memorial University (2013), the event will attract 500 delegates from around the globe to Simon Fraser University (Vancouver, Surrey, Burnaby, British Columbia) from May 1–5, 2017.

Every year, C2Uexpo expands to include more topics and areas of expertise. At the same time, they strive to keep the level of interactivity of engagement that comes from fostering dialogue among community, post-secondary and government.

When the idea of community-campus partnerships was in its first stages of growth, researchers and community groups alike had very few resources available to them to which they could turn for guidance. The C2UExpo movement began in Canada to address this dearth, and provided individuals involved in community-campus partnerships with a forum through which they could share experiences, strategies, and ideas.
