Dillon is pleased to announce that Ann Joyner has been inducted to the Canadian Institute of Planners College of Fellows for her contributions to the planning profession. The College of Fellows is the highest honour a planner in Canada can receive. Ann will be formally recognized at the joint Canadian Institute of Planners and L’Ordre des urbanistes du Québec’s national planning conference, Accent on Planning, held in Quebec City on July 6, 2016.
Ann is widely known for her contribution to professional planning through her focused commitment to the recognition of the practice through community service and leadership. For over two decades, Ann has promoted sustainable development, integrated land use, environmental and infrastructure planning, and the cohesive approach that Ann advocated for and launched in Ontario has been adopted across Canada. The pinnacle of her work for planners in Ontario is her advocacy for the self-regulation of the profession in Ontario.
For over two decades, Ann has encouraged collaboration between academic and applied planning practices by bringing her consulting expertise to the classroom and has supported young planners through dedicated mentorship. Ann’s practice has been sustained through significant projects such as GRIDS and the Airport Employment Growth District (City of Hamilton); integrated sustainability plans in East Gwillimbury and Peel Region, among others across Canada; Toronto Regent Park re-development, and the Toronto Port Lands Master Plan.
