The Neptis Foundation is an independent, privately capitalized charitable foundation located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Neptis conducts and disseminates nonpartisan research, analysis and mapping related to the design and function of Canadian urban regions. We aim to inform and to improve policy- and decision-making around regional urban growth and management.
Our research program is based on identified gaps in information. When a research project is framed, Neptis staff work with the researcher(s) to develop the key questions that need to be answered. Although staff provide comments on initial drafts of the project, Neptis does not control the outcome of the research. All projects are subject to peer-review by leading scholars or specialists.
Publication on the Neptis website is managed directly by staff, although some work may be co-published with academic presses.
Neptis does not accept unsolicited requests for financial support of research.
