The Great Places in Canada award winning spaces are determined by a jury of planners. One Great Street, Great Neighbourhood, and Great Public Space are awarded the title of Great Place in Canada each year. The municipality home to the Great Place in Canada will receive a plaque which can be displayed at their Great Place.”
"GREAT PLACES ARE PLANNED
Great places enhance urban and rural communities and invite use by citizens of all ages and backgrounds.
Planners play a role in creating and safeguarding these places by addressing the use of land, resources, facilities and services with consideration to promoting people’s health, happiness, and well-being."
