The plan for Canada’s capital, 2017–2067: W93-36/2017E-PDF

“Planning Canada’s Capital has been a primary responsibility of the National Capital Commission (NCC) and its predecessor organizations for more than a century. This edition of the Plan for Canada’s Capital coincides with the national sesquicentennial celebrations in 2017, and it looks ahead 50 years to the bicentennial in 2067. The Plan derives from a spirited civic discussion, conducted from coast to coast to coast, about how to forge a bold but achievable vision for Canada’s Capital Region in the 21st century. Beneath the Plan’s three overarching themes, Canadians have proposed 17 milestone initiatives that will build on the work of the eminent planners of the past century: Frederick Todd, Edward Bennett and Jacques Gréber. The Capital in 2067 will respect its situation on traditional lands of the Algonquin Anishinabeg. It will be inclusive of all Canadians, with a rich array of national symbols. It will be ecologically sustainable in its picturesque natural setting, and it will be a thriving place, connected to the world in a digital age. With this outlook, the Plan reflects the optimism of Canadians about their country and their capital”--Cover.
