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.
UBC School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture Program (SALA) announces the Joyce Drohan Travel Award
In honour of Joyce Mariann Drohan (1954-2022) UBC SALA announces a new Travel Award. Joyce was a former CanU board member, an award-winning Vancouver architect and urban designer, who believed in creating liveable, sustainable and resilient. For more detail and to donate, follow the link below.
CanU is concerned with the new legislation prepared under Bill 23 “More Homes Built Faster” Act in that CanU supports more housing but not at the expense of implementing and supporting strong and resilient communities. Both are not mutually exclusive.
CanU remains committed to housing and community building to help the Province and our communities navigate a highly competitive and harsher economic and environmental reality.
With this in mind, CanU has prepared and submitted a letter commenting on the proposed legislation .
Thank you all who indirectly or directly provided comments and helped shape the letter.
