Date Topic
February Feb. 12 | 2021 Economic Outlook for the Planning Profession in Ontario
2020 was a year for the history books. It was a year that altered perceptions about where we live, work, play, shop, dine and exercise. It was a year that, unfortunately, took its toll on businesses, employment, education and childcare. So, what can we anticipate for 2021 in a pandemic environment that continues to evolve?

March Mar. 12 | A Black Voice in Planning: Representation Matters 
Join us for an interactive conversation that will explore representation of Black voices in planning through the context of contemporary concepts such as complete communities, displacement, affordable housing, home ownership, planning policies, and much more.

April Apr. 9 | Planning for On-Farm Diversification: Challenges And Opportunities
This panel discussion will explore both the challenges and opportunities associated with agriculture-related and on-farm diversified uses. While agri-tourism, on-farm manufacturing, and wineries/cideries all have their place in rural Ontario, they can create challenges for neighbours, planners, and politicians alike. As with any land use planning matter, planners are left to find an appropriate balance between farmland protection and economic growth.
