Great Places in Canada

The Canadian Institute of Planners recognizes the contributions of planners by celebrating their lasting impressions on Canadian communities through the Great Places in Canada contest. This national contest began in 2010. Canadians from coast to coast are invited to participate by nominating and voting for a great street, neighborhood, or place.
Only one Great Places in Canada is selected for each of the categories: Great Street, Great Neighbourhood, and Great Public Space. Winners are awarded the title of Great Place in Canada by a jury of professional planners. The street, neighbourhood, and place with the most votes receives the title of Great Place in Canada-People’s Choice. Learn more about the Great Places in Canada contest at
