This is a collection of case studies related to three major projects led by Professor Ann Dale.:

  1. The Canada Research Chair in Sustainable Community Development (CRC) brings together case studies that focus on leading-edge sustainable development projects, strategies and plans happening in communities across Canada. This research agenda is funded by the Canada Research Chair's program of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC).

  2. The next project brings together cases highlighting sustainable infrastructure success stories in Canada, on governance, land-use planning, transportation, waste and energy. We are grateful to funding from Infrastructure Canada/SSHRC for this research.

  3. The Climate Change and Adaptation case studies are part of a three-year SSHRC research project being led by Dr. Kevin Hanna, Wilfrid Laurier University, and we will be continuing to add case studies to this section as they are prepared.

Links to these three collections of case studies can be found at the bottom of this page and in the menu above.
