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 School of Urban and Regional Planning includes the Ambassadors' Forum. Created in 2003, this Forum brings together ambassadors to Canada from 20 Asia-Pacific countries, who meet every three months for discussion with thoughtful and informed Canadians on current affairs topics. The countries represented include, alphabetically, Afghanistan, Australia, Bangladesh, Brunei, China, India, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, New Zealand, Pakistan, Philippines, Thailand, Sri Lanka and Vietnam. The Forum broadens the internationalization efforts of the University. During term time two SURP students are invited to participate in each of the sessions.
