CIP Launches New Planning Practice and Reconciliation Policy

The Canadian Institute of Planners (CIP) recently launched a new Planning Practice and Reconciliation policy to help planners “engage in meaningful and sustained relationship building with Indigenous Peoples of Canada.” Heather Swan contributed to the development of the policy, as a member of CIP’s Indigenous Community Planning Committee.

The policy establishes “CIP’s goal for reconciliation to be meaningfully embedded in planning practice in Canada; sets objectives needed to achieve this goal in all aspects of planning practice; and defines and describes the roles and responsibilities of today’s professional planners in meeting those objectives.
