About the School of Urban Planning

Where planning in Canada began

McGill University was the first in Canada to offer a full-time program in Urban Planning, with the creation of an interdisciplinary program in 1947 through which students combined a master's degree in their original field with Urban Planning. An autonomous program was established in 1972; this led to the establishment of the School of Urban Planning. We are now housed within the Faculty of Engineering, along with the School of Architecture, with which we have long-standing affiliations.
