In 1919, the Town Planning Institute of Canada (TPIC) brought together the founders of a new discipline committed to improving cities and those who live in them. TPIC's Journal, and its successor, Plan Canada, provide a wealth of knowledge about Canadian planning. These journals have served as the voice for Canadian urban planning theory, history, and practice; Plan Canada, as the journal of record of Canadian planning research and practice, continues to inform international discourse about the profession.A Reader in Canadian Planning: Linking Theory and Practice is a selection of some of the most important and provocative articles from Plan Canada from the last 30 years.Articles included in the Reader highlight the accomplishments and contribution of Canadian planning theory and practice. It is suitable as a text for courses in Canadian community planning theory and practice, and for those preparing for the Canadian Institute of Planner's entrance examination. Jill Grant's introduction and commentaries develop a theoretical and historical framework to set a context for the papers and the issues they raise.
