The Planning, Infrastructure and Economic Development Department is offering the Planning Primer Program to help residents become more aware of, and more involved in, the land-use planning process. Online materials are also available for Courses and Electives.
The program is a series of half-day courses. The series includes two core courses and two elective courses.
- January 27 – 5 pm to 8 pm
- February 1 – 1 pm to 4 pm
The core courses, called Primer I and Primer II, describe the legislative and policy basis under which land-use planning decisions are made, the way policy documents are amended and how to make a development application.
The program aims to:
- Build and maintain a strong working relationship and understanding between the City of Ottawa and communities
- Provide resources and teach skills to aid residents participating in the land-use planning process
