dc.description.abstractDemographic changes have presented particular challenges to planners in the City of Vancouver. Planners have to balance the interests of long-term residents with the needs of newcomers. They must analyze the planning practices currently in place, determine how well the population is served by them, and adjust them as the population changes. The goal is to break down systemic barriers and create an integrated, culturally sensitive approach to serving the diverse population. Multicultural planning focuses on citizen-centred planning outcomes and active engagement in community development, education, communication, and integration. Vancouver has adopted several of these strategies.en

IIs doivent analyser les processus en place, en determiner l'efficacité et les adapter aux changements dans la population afin d'abattre les barrièeres institutionnelles et d'instaurer des pratiques intégrées tenant compte de la diversité de la population. L'urbanisme multiculturel est fondé sur le citoyen, le developpement communautaire, l'éducation, la communication et l'intégration. Vancouver a mis en place plusieurs de ces strategies.fr
