Welcome to the
Council for Canadian Urbanism

At CanU we are focused on advancing great urban design as the foundation for city building in communities across Canada.  We do this by connecting people and professionals who have similar interests, educating and informing stakeholders and influencers, giving support to those involved in city design and advocating for better policies, programs and investments.

Thank you to our Sponsors !

The virtual events from 2020 would not have been possible without our amazing sponsors! We are so thankful to have the support of these businesses for the CanU 2020 Step Up Series. They have been a loyal supporter since day one and we could not do this work without them. 


Council for Canadian Urbanism - Resilience Working Group

Action on Climate Change Starts at Home

A climate change emergency has been called, does your municipality have a plan?

Join the CanU Resiliency Working Group, comprised of public, private, and academic participants,

to discuss the challenges municipalities encounter when embarking on climate change initiatives.


The Council for Canadian Urbanism (CanU) is a network of city planners, urban designers, architects landscape architects, engineers, developers and other urbanists operating across Canada, in urban design leadership positions within city governments and the private or community sectors.

CanU strives to connect urbanists across Canada and has actively promoted the inclusion of all regions with representation in both English and French, in the use of best practices and in sharing experience in the building of great communities.

CanU believes that dialogue and debate is required, but must lead to meaningful action. It is up to all those involved in planning and design of our cities, subscribing and believing in this idea, to respond to this appeal and rally with the group leading towards a better future for our regions, cities, towns and villages.
