The objectives of this program are well-planned, safe, strong and sustainable communities that enhance quality of life and support a prosperous economy. This program helps ensure well-managed growth that preserves greenspace and the environment, encourages brownfields redevelopment and provides for population and employment growth. Attaining these objectives includes ensuring the safety of buildings through an effective and efficient building regulatory system. It involves increased energy efficiency and conservation and environmental protection, and greater accessibility. It also requires an effective legislative, policy-led and administrative framework for land-use planning, including a strong one-window provincial planning system, and excellent advice as well as education and training to support municipal and provincial capacity and the implementation of new government plans, programs and initiatives. All of this work is guided by meaningful stakeholder engagement and consultation.
