Plan Canada Webinar Series: Safety

April 25, 2024


12:00 PM

Join CIP for the next edition of the new Plan Canada Webinar Series! Listen as authors from the most recent issue share more insights from their article, dive deeper into the theme, and take members’ questions live.


The Spring 2024 webinar will look at “Urban Planning & Public Safety.” In today’s world, public safety continuously reasserts itself as one of the most pressing concerns related to community well-being. Since planners traditionally focus on policies in the public interest, this issue recognizes the evolving landscape where safety, in all its dimensions, underlies much of planning work.


Each Plan Canada webinar is free for members to attend and can be used toward your Continuous Professional Learning (CPL) requirements. Non-members are also welcome to join for a fee of $35, plus applicable taxes.

If you are a CIP member and attend the webinar, your CPL units will be automatically applied to your account and be viewable in the Member Area. It does not get easier than that! Just make sure to register with the same email as your CIP/PTIA Member Area login (your primary email) in order to ensure eligible CPL units are automatically added to your account.
