OI: Innovations in Canadian Urbanism

Friday, June 10 @ 3:45 PM – 5:00 PM
The Canadian experience offers innovative approaches to the problems affecting contemporary urbanism. The speakers, representing the Council for Canadian Urbanism as well as CNU Ontario Chapter, present a number of key issues of the practice of urbanism with focus on the Greater Toronto and Ontario experience including:
  1. Regional planning
  2. High-rise neighbourhoods
  3. Innovative approaches to affordable housing and equitable development
  4. Climate change mitigation and adaptation, sustainable and healthy development
  5. Specific tools for creating complete, walkable, transit oriented communities, for integrating heritage, for local character and identity

Particular attention will be paid to strategies for “urbanizing suburbia” with examples including sustainable mobility, higher order transit, planning for suburban centres, and planning and design for intensification corridors and complete new urban extensions.
