World Town Planning Day

APPI supports World Town Planning Day (WTPD) as an opportunity to promote better understanding and awareness of Canadian Planners and planning to the local community and all levels of government. WTPD is November 8 of each year. APPI Regional Event Committees are proud ambassadors and host various events to connect planner, public and government.

World Town Planning Day was initiated in 1949 by the late Professor Carlos Maria della Paolera, Argentina, to advance public and professional interest in planning, both locally and abroad. It highlights the valuable contributions that sound planning has made to the quality of the human environment and provides recognition of the ideals of community planning among the profession and the general public worldwide. It is a day to give special recognition to the ideals of community planning which bring professional planners and the general public together.
