Planning and Agri-Food Systems: Evaluating the Capacity of Ontario Municipalities

The global demographic trend of population ageing presents a challenge for government institutions, urban planners, policy makers and community organizations. Concurrently, ageing in place has emerged in planning discourse, with the potential to support cities in becoming age-friendly environments. This thesis poses the research question: to what extent and how can cities experiencing population ageing use ageing in place as a conceptual planning and policy tool to create the conditions for older adults to age in place successfully? The literature review finds five dichotomies, offering analytical frameworks for the case studies of Windsor, Canada and Brescia, Italy. The case studies describe the existing conditions for ageing in place at three spatial scales: the internal and external characteristics of the home, and the neighbourhood, considering both private owned homes and social housing. The research question is answered in a six-part proposal for ageing in place programs in care, the home and ICT: the Continuum of Care, Neighbourhoods of Care, Green Retrofitting, Adaptable Homes Modifications, Alternative Housing Typologies, and Telemedicine and Social Calls. These proposals offer a framework for cities to implement ageing in place policies according to their unique contexts, and highlight the role of older residents as important community resources.

On October 26 2022, CIP held an important webinar with CIP’s insurance broker BMS to review the updated process for members requiring Professional Liability Insurance.
In this session, Matt Alexander will provide scenarios and strategies for improving your work practice when engaging with residents who are concerned about new development but may feel excluded from the planning process. Learn what it takes to help residents feel heard and understood, diffuse volatile opposition and foster greater understanding of the planning process. Matt will share what he learned from his experiences at the Local Planning Appeal Support Centre (LPASC), responding to requests for assistance with everything from minor variances to major high-rise development and comprehensive zoning bylaw updates from across Ontario.
