The IAP2 BC "Member Spotlight" is a way for our members to get to know each other. Contact us to showcase your practice!
With a strong track record in dozens of sustainability-focused projects across Western Canada over
the last 10 years, Modus Planning Design & Engagement Inc. brings together 6 experienced colleagues to offer fresh approaches to the future for communities of all sizes. Policy and program development, project planning and implementation, and detailed site and neighbourhood design are the main services, almost always emphasizing “strong engagement” of stakeholders and the public.
Clients are primarily local and regional governments facing many competing pressures including evolving legislation, changing demographics, a growing “infrastructure gap”, stagnant tax revenues, the impacts of climate change, and ever-increasing demand for services. Other clients include progressive developers, universities, non-profit agencies, unions and both provincial and federal ministries.
We have two IAP2 certified members, work at all points along the continuum of public participation in our projects, create tools and formats to support participation, and are now developing training units
and formal engagement policies for and with several of our clients (Rocky View County, University of
Victoria, City of Victoria, Alberta Municipal Association, Urban Sustainability Director’s Network, etc.).
We have a specialty in digital engagement, teach our approaches at several universities, and speak widely on the value of high quality public participation.
