APPI and CIP support World Town Planning Day as an opportunity to promote better understanding and awareness of Canadian planners and planning to local communities and all levels of government.
We encourage members to organize local events and activities highlighting their profession. Planners do much more than create city plans and ensure that development adheres to land use policies and zoning bylaws. Depending where you live, planners’ work can also influence many aspects of local life that are specific to your community. In some places, agricultural matters, preservation of heritage buildings, waterfront development, resource management, civic engagement or the protection of wildlife and natural environments may be of particular importance.
You are invited to: 
 Distribute World Town Planning Day messages to town councils and government bodies
 Share news of your local activities with World Town Planning Day participants from around the world. If you are holding an event, please share it with CIP and APPI by emailing both organizations [email protected] and [email protected].
 Provide a link from your web site to this World Town Planning Day page.
World Town Planning Day is an international celebration of the accomplishments of planners and their contributions to their communities. The international organization for World Town Planning Day was founded in 1949 by the late Professor Carlos Maria della Paolera of the University of Buenos Aires. His aim was to promote public and professional interest in planning, both at home and overseas.
This year, CIP will be hosting the international WTPD Online Conference, November 6-10, 2017, which will consist of a series of online presentations showcasing innovative planning practices from Canada and around the world. The conference will be streamed through software called GoToWebinar and two events are anticipated each day between 11:00 am and 4:00 pm Eastern Standard Time. Registration will be open mid-October, stay tuned for more information.
