Over the past century a regional approach to planning has shaped and informed the Canadian landscape as reflected in provincial programs directed at agricultural land protection, watershed conservation, and metropolitan growth strategies. This course examines the historical and present-day context for regional planning in Canada from its origins in agricultural assistance to its current manifestation in sustainable development and bioregionalism. Regional planning as a governance structure and institutional framework will be a common thread through the course. Emphasis will be placed on the interpretation and function of rural and urban landscapes from a regional perspective. Upon completion of this course students will have an appreciation for the dynamic forces shaping Canadian regions, awareness of regional governance structures, as well as an understanding of current trends in regional planning in Canada.
