The 9th annual TimberFever returned this past September and was a tremendous success. The competition was held at Toronto Metropolitan University (TMU) with nearly 100 students participating in the 3-day event with students in engineering and architecture from across Canada. This year’s theme was transit and cycling – students were required to design and build a shelter to accommodate transit users and provide parking for bicycles. Since the COVID pandemic, many cities in North America, Toronto included, have significantly increased their cycling infrastructure. The student teams rose to the challenge, inspired by keynote speakers from the City of Toronto cycling management group, and with the assistance of members of the College of Carpenters, union Local 27, built their creations outdoors on the TMU campus.
Thank you to the dozens of volunteers who assisted throughout the competition and the student organizing committee! Thanks also to all of our amazing sponsors.

1st Place: Delta
2nd Place: Folium
3rd Place: Intermission
People’s Choice Award: Che-San
