Building better neighbourhoods

GBCI: 0910000190

Session at the Alberta Sustainable Building Symposium 2014.
Eligible for 1 CE HOUR.
  • 1 CE




Over the next 28 years, Alberta’s housing and development industry will need to build homes for 2.2 million new Albertans as our province becomes older, more ethnically diverse and more concentrated in urban centres. Government, industry, consultants, consumers and stakeholders must re-examine how neighbourhoods function and how we manage growth in a sustainable way. This presentation will use Alberta-based case studies to examine these challenges. Discussion will include how neighbourhoods are designed, approved and constructed as well as best practices in neighbourhood design. Discussion will focus on enabling best practices through policy change while balancing markets, regulatory and financial considerations.


  1. Increase understanding of why and how Canada’s communities are expanding.
  2. Increase understanding of how neighbourhoods function and how growth is managed.
  3. Learn best practices in neighbourhood design.
