The Canadian Association of Planning Students

The Canadian Association of Planning Students (CAPS) has been an active group for planning students and will celebrate 30 years as a registered association in 2014. CAPS has an official governing and operational structure and continues to host annual conferences for planning students. The overlying goal of CAPS is to provide Canadian Planning Students with a venue to share research, learn about planning programs, and discuss planning issues and initiatives.

The CAPS-ACEAU conference is a student run initiative which moves from city to city across Canada every year. It is a fantastic way to meet with your peers from across the country and find out about the exciting planning work they are doing.

2014 CAPS Conference

February 6 - 8, 2014 - TIFF Bell Lightbox, Toronto, ON

The Canadian Association of Planning Students – L’Association Canadienne des Étudiants en Aménagement et en Urbanisme (CAPS-ACEAU) is a non-profit student-driven organization that hosts an annual conference for Canadian planning students.

The annual CAPS-ACÉAU conference is the primary event for students and researchers in urban, rural and regional planning disciplines at Canadian universities. In recent years it has also become a major event for those in related fields such as terrestrial and marine resource management, geography and policy studies. It has been held in a different Canadian City each year 30 years.

Ryerson University, the University of Toronto, and York University are excited to announce their successful bid for hosting the 30th Annual Canadian Association of Planning Students' (CAPS-ACEAU) Conference.

With the theme of "Transformations", our tri-campus initiative will bring together students and professionals alike to discuss the changes to our shared urban experience, our cities' fabrics, and the planning profession itself. Headlined by several world-renowned urbanists and incorporating innovative participant programming, "Transformations" promises to be a unique three-day experience.
