about this item

Planning Canadian Regions was the first book to integrate the history, contemporary practice, and emergent issues of regional planning in Canada. This much-anticipated second edition brings the discussion up to date, applying the same thorough analysis to illuminate the factors rapidly shaping our regional landscapes. Special attention is paid to the need to plan for climate change, the development inequities faced by peripheral resource regions, the distinctive planning needs of large urban regions comprising several metropolitan areas, and the special role of Aboriginal peoples in regional planning. This book challenges planners and policy makers alike to engage with the latest thinking on regional planning and strive for best planning practices in the twenty-first century.
