Determining Borders as Urban Planning
Urban Planning Characteristics

From the Paper:

"In the early 20th century, inclination of Canadian workers to acquire land at a breakneck pace was another reason urban planning and development was seen as a necessity by the central government as well as the provincial governments: "Workers did everything they could to acquire property, sacrificing convenience, and sometimes their children's education in the process" (2004, p.27). Thus, the urgency regarding the implementation of urban planning and development really began at the turn of the 19th century and continues to this day."
