School of Urban and Regional Planning (SURP)

Since 1970, our rigorous and well-focused two-year Master of Urban and Regional Planning (M.PL.) program allows our students to develop the knowledge and skills they require to become leaders in the planning field and to meet the challenges of a rapidly evolving urban environment.

Our program is professionally accredited by the Professional Standards Board on behalf of the Ontario Professional Planners Institute (OPPI) and the Canadian Institute of Planners (CIP).   The program is currently accredited to the end of the academic year 2020-2021.
