CIP also wants to send a big thank you to each person or group that put together a nomination for their favourite place. This year the quality of submissions was amazing, and the judges were impressed.
Prizes for the nominators of the winning places have been generously provided by VIA Rail Canada and Roots Canada.
Great Places in Canada was created by the Canadian Institute of Planners (CIP) to celebrate and share those places which make one’s community unique and to recognize the vital work of our country’s professional planners. Each nominated place is showcased on the 2015 Nominations page.
There are two ways for a nomination to win:
1. The Grand Prize
The honour of “Great Place” is awarded by a jury of Professional Planners based a variety of planning merits under each category. Nominators receive a prize and a plaque is given to commemorate the place’s new designation.
2. People’s Choice
These awards are based solely on which place receives the most votes in each category. It is a fun way to rally your community to vote and support its local nominee.
