Y Magazine will publish three issues in 2020 focusing on the following topics:
As home and condo prices soar in Ontario, many communities are struggling to provide housing for residents, including a variety of housing types for a diverse population. Economic, social and political issues affect the ability of communities to provide housing, provide the conditions for housing to be built and ensure residents of all ages and abilities are properly housed. The Winter 2020 issue will look at the specific stories and work being done by planners to inform the choices made by local communities to address this issue.
Deadline for advertising: December 2, 2019
Aging residents, newcomers and immigrants, children, young adults, adults taking care of kids and parents and everyone in between - how do planners plan for communities that take into consideration a variety of different ages and abilities? What are communities across Ontario doing to accommodate aging populations or an influx of newcomers and still make their communities feel like home and not a community of strangers? Our Spring/Summer issue will look at how planners are addressing demographic challenges and what the opportunities are in focusing on this issue.
Deadline for advertising: April 6, 2020
Originally, the next issue of Y Magazine was going to focus on the very important topic of Truth and Reconciliation. We will return to this topic in 2021 and bring you the stories and perspectives you need to hear and know about.
Y Magazine cannot ignore what is happening in communities here and around the world. The world doesn’t operate within a vacuum and neither does planning. Despite all the challenges faced globally, and the dark days experienced by families dealing with terrible loss, the stress our front line healthcare and emergency responders, grocery store workers, and all essential workers have faced during the COVID-19 pandemic, there is hope around the corner. Humanity is resilient and we will recover. If there is a profession that is well equipped to lead communities out from these dark days, it is the planning profession and Ontario's Registered Professional Planners.
Our next issue of Y Magazine focuses on the examples of resiliency and how and what we should be thinking about as we recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. OPPI is seeking article ideas, topics and interview subjects to explore for this issue. Members interested in getting involved can contact OPPI's Editor, Carolyn Camilleri, by email at email@example.com.

Canada is undergoing renewal and change with respect to its relationship with Indigenous communities across the country. Ontario is home to many indigenous people and communities seeking a greater voice and place. Reconciliation by non-Indigenous Canadians is a multi-generational process and in order to begin that process, hard truths must be exposed, discussed and acknowledged. Our Winter issue will explore these truths and how planners play an important role in working alongside Indigenous Peoples and communities to begin walking down the path of Reconciliation together.
