GEOG 311: Canadian Urban Development Report a Broken Link

While Canada is often portrayed as vastly unpopulated, it is actually a highly urbanized country: more than 80% of Canadians live in urban places. GEOG 311: Canadian Urban Development explores the people, institutions, and processes that shape urban places in Canada. While its focus is Canadian urbanization, it contextualizes this by considering global processes of economic, cultural, and social change that impact Canadian urban residents. Students will be introduced to various social, political, and planning theories used to make sense of urban change and structure in order to build knowledge about the general characteristics of urbanization and of urban places in Canada.
