Welcome to the School of Planning
Today's Challenges: Future Possibilities
The School of Planning takes an interdisciplinary approach in addressing the major challenges facing our communities today as well as working with them towards a more sustainable, healthy and vibrant future for the places we call home.
Our comprehensive approach is drawn from the diverse range of planning areas including environmental planning, community sustainability, urban design, transportation, housing, urban economics, and heritage. Located in the Faculty of Environment's LEED Platinum certified Environment 3 building, it is the only planning school in Canada to offer programs at the bachelor's, master's, and PhD levels.
Accredited by the Canadian Institute of Planners, our programs provide unique experiential learning opportunities and a high quality education that is the foundation for their future success!
