Name of creator
The British Columbia Division of the Community Planning Association of Canada was founded in 1947 to promote public interest and involvement in community, urban and regional planning. The Division was involved in many issues over the years, such as the Shaughnessy "Save Our Parkland" campaign, the Green Urban Land Policy and the Neighbourhood Improvement program. The Division had several branches in Richmond, Victoria and Vancouver. As well as carrying out lobbying on various planning issues, the association coordinated education programs, held regional and national conferences and published reports and a newsletter. In 1977, the association, both nationally and locally, was disbanded.
