Sustaining Canada's Future.

SOUL 2018 Presentations

Discover what SOUL means to planning at the Canadian Institute of Planners and Manitoba Professional Planners Institute National Conference, SOUL 2018 from July 19-22, 2018 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. A place where, for thousands of years, Indigenous Peoples of the prairies cared for the land at the convergence of the Red and Assiniboine Rivers; where rural farms sprouted in all directions when Manitoba joined Confederation; and where years thereafter Winnipeg began to rise as the Gateway to the West. The story of Manitoba; its unique landscape, Indigenous roots, diverse cultural landscape and strong social fabric have moulded communities throughout the province.

Our culture, our environments, and our stories shape the spaces around us – spaces that reflect the SOUL of our communities. As we address current and future needs, we are challenged to incorporate SOUL into our planning work, to create communities that are energetic and thriving.

At SOUL 2018, the program will challenge you to reflect on what SOUL means to the Planning Community across Canada, to mesh the practical with the thoughtful, through the lens of our dynamic city and regional landscapes.
