Six universities across Ontario offer accredited planning programs which allow students to develop the knowledge and skills they require to become leaders in the planning field.
These programs provide students with opportunities to engage in rigorous and well-focused education across a broad spectrum of planning issues like urban design, rural studies, community sustainability, transportation, housing, heritage, and more. Each unique program allows students to engage in teamwork, active learning, and real-world projects led by exceptional professors and lecturers with years of experience as practicing professional planners.
As a planning student, you'll contribute to innovative research, embark on travel opportunities, engage with community members, and develop your own unique areas of study. You'll enter the workforce with a professional edge, ready to navigate the challenges of rapidly evolving environments, and play an important role in achieving community strength now - and for future generations.
