About the Program: Communities are complex entities with their own needs, structures and rules—and planners are the ones who guide their operation and promote their growth. Drawing on their understanding of land-use concepts and strategies, planners create and implement plans to develop and enhance regional, urban, suburban and rural communities. Ryerson graduates advise on planning decisions related to social, economic, cultural, land-development, transportation, resource development, environmental, heritage and other issues.

This program selects students on the basis of academic achievement/grades only. Additional non-academic requirements are not required for admission consideration.
