With few natural barriers to urban expansion, Toronto and the metro region have experienced remarkably compact growth for a North American city. This is no accident. As a Canadian city, significant planning authority rests with the provincial government, which has imposed strong growth-related policies on metropolitan municipalities, tied to transit infrastructure planning. On this tour, you will explore signature manifestations of this planning regime from the dense urban core to transit-oriented and urbanized suburbs. Discover how Toronto has achieved an urban density that rivals that of Copenhagen!

Tour Cost: US$125 per person, which includes lunch.
