Integrated Expertise

Planning

As Bousfields planners, we are actively engaged in the ongoing transformation of communities across Ontario and are a driving force in shaping its urban landscape.

We have earned our reputation for excellence in urban planning with a focus on planning approvals. 

This is how we do it.

  • Multidisciplinary collaboration
    We work closely with our urban design and community engagement teams, viewing each project from multiple angles. No detail is overlooked.
  • Integrated knowledge
    Our collective wealth of experience and professional expertise gives us a holistic perspective that delivers innovative and well-balanced solutions.
  • Project diversity
    We are valuable contributors to projects of all scales in private and public sectors, from single site developments to urban revitalization initiatives and large-scale development projects.

“There is something concrete – literally concrete – about helping to change the skyline of the most populous city in this country and other parts of this region. That’s something that as Bousfields planners we get to do. The journey is just as important as the destination.”

– Planner

We expertly navigate the complexities of the planning framework. 

Knowing the process as well as the policies means that we can fully support our clients at every planning stage.

Our comprehensive approach to planning involves:

  • Due diligence, feasibility and site selection analysis that helps our clients find sites that best meet their needs 
  • Analysis and application rationale that provides a professional impartial opinion, supported by a range of materials 
  • Thoughtful policy review and analysis to provide the best advice to our clients and the industry
  • Working with municipal staff and community members on development proposals
  • Delivering objective, evidence-based analysis at OLT and TLAB
  • Providing complete project management services that ensure projects are delivered to the highest standards of quality

Over the course of 2023, Bousfielders were fortunate to travel and experience places near and far. 

Swipe to see a sample of some of the amazing photos shared as part of a recent event our DEI Committee hosted, where we discussed what new perspectives our travels brought us this year.

Bonus points if you can guess where some of these photos were taken!
