Since 1970, our rigorous and well-focused two-year Master of 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.
The City of Kingston is not without social issues and problems. In particular, the Social Planning Council of Kingston has investigated and tried to address the issue of homelessness. There is also a Mayor’s taskforce on homelessness. Furthermore, a Kingston Model is being developed to provide a practical, action-oriented approach through which the City of Kingston and its community partners can take positive steps to meet the range of affordable housing needs facing the City today and in the future. A particular emphasis is being placed on expanding the supply of various forms of housing to address the full continuum of housing needs in the area. The Kingston Mode for Action-Affordable Housing Supply, prepared in 2005, sets out the components of the Kingston Model and recommends a range of actions aimed at expanding the supply of affordable housing throughout the City of Kingston.
