Planning Canada: A Case Study Approach
Olga Shcherbyna, along with Nora Angeles and John Foster, co-authored a chapter in a new Canadian planning textbook (2016) which brings together a collection of essays and studies covering a wide array of planning topics.
Edited by Ren Thomas, the textbook includes a range of practice and research based cases in eight areas: community and social planning, urban form and public health, natural resource management, housing, participatory processes, urban design, urban redevelopment, and transportation and infrastructure planning. They include examples from urban, rural, and Aboriginal communities across the country.
Planning Canada: A Case Study Approach is intended to introduce undergraduate students in planning, geography, and urban studies to the planning discipline in Canada, but the case studies offer enough depth to be used in graduate courses as well.
