CIP - Issues

CIP addresses pressing concerns that affect planning in Canada and around the world—from climate change, housing and transportation to indigenous issues, urban design and healthy communities. These topics intersect with each other at the local, city, regional, national and global levels. Tackling them together and at every scale is essential for achieving the physical, economic and social efficiency, health and well-being of urban and rural communities.
