Getting on BoardPresented by Evergreen and the Pembina Institute

Jun. 9, 2017  12:00pm - 1:00pm EASTERN TIME, Online webinar - Public event

 The current roll-out of rapid transit infrastructure in Ontario is one of the biggest infrastructure builds in the province’s history, with over $30 billion in investment from the Province of Ontario and major inputs from the federal and municipal governments. With such significant investments at stake, it’s important to get the process right. 

Join Evergreen and the Pembina Institute for a presentation and discussion around best practices in stakeholder engagement and land use planning for rapid transit projects. We’ll be highlighting the findings in our latest report, Getting on Board: Learning from planning and engagement around rapid transit projects in Ontario, which looked at rapid transit projects in Waterloo Region, Ottawa, Mississauga and Hamilton. Through interviews with over 20 stakeholders including residents, businesses, city councillors, provincial agencies and city staff, we identified challenges and key success factors to effective design and engagement. 

This webinar will highlight these findings, with time at the end for questions and discussion. The presentation will be led by Michelle German, senior manager of policy and partnerships at Evergreen, and Lindsay Wiginton, transportation and urban solutions analyst at the Pembina Institute.
