The annual University of Alberta Celebration of Planning Program Fundraiser will be held on November 9th this year. The event provides scholarships for students in the School of Urban and Regional Planning.

The evening will be filled with great food, drinks (host bar), and conversation.

The highlight will be Petcha Kucha presentations from Anne Stevenson, City of Edmonton Councillor; Puneeta McBryan, Executive Director of the Downtown Business Association of Edmonton; and Mike Saunders, Qualico Properties Senior Vice President.

The undergraduate program in Urban and Regional Planning was launched eleven years ago and the Masters program launched in the Fall of 2017. Our goal is to raise the University of Alberta's Planning Program to be the best Planning program in Canada. We don't seek to be the largest, but rather to be the program that best prepares our graduates to address the real-world challenges that our communities face today and in the future.

The planning scholarship endowment fund allows the School to attract the best students from Alberta and across the globe. Each year the endowment grows as a result of the annual fundraiser. Last year nearly $25,000 was raised, with over 150 people in attendance, including many key planning and development leaders from the region.
