Canadian Celebration of World Town Planning Day: November 8

CIP supports World Town Planning Day as an opportunity to promote better understanding and awareness of Canadian planners and planning to local communities and all levels of government.

Celebrate World Town Planning Day in Your Community

CIP invites planners to celebrate the value and contributions of planning and planners in their community. You are invited to: 
  • Share news of your local activities with World Town Planning Day participants from around the world. If you are holding an event, please share it with CIP by emailing communications@cip-icu.ca.
  • Distribute World Town Planning Day messages to town councils and government bodies.
  • Provide a link from your web site to this World Town Planning Day page.

We thank all of our members who support World Town Planning Day, and are grateful for the communities who have shared their celebrations with us.
