Canadian Institue Of Planners

Shaping our Communities
Sustaining Canada's Future.



This presentation focuses on three high-profile and ongoing pipeline protests over the past five years: Standing Rock Sioux opposition to the Dakota Access Pipeline, Giniw Collective activism against Line 3, and Wet'suwet'en resistance to Coastal GasLink at the Unist'ot'en Camp. Each of these protests serves as a case study of one element of planning: sovereignty, values, and futurity. Recognizing Indigenous pipeline protests as planning is importanct because it disrupts the reification of planning by the settler state and affirms Indigenous self-determination. Understanding how Indigenous communities continue to plan under occupation and affirming that as planning will allow settler planners to shift towards models of co-governance rather than domination.

This presentation described the innovative engagement process with local First Nations to understand more deeply the values and principles that matter to them, how this process is changing the way staff works day-to-day, and how it translates into a living urban park in the heart of Vancouver.
