July 14, 2017 - A credit course - PLAN 474 / 674 – Aggregate Resources Planning, Development and Management – first introduced in 2015 at the University of Waterloo, is being offered again in the Fall term of 2017 as an elective in the School of Planning. The course exposes participants to a variety of topics associated with aggregate resources, important but contentious issues in planning and resource management in Ontario and elsewhere. It is believed that PLAN 474 / 674 is still the first of its kind in Ontario, and possibly in Canada. Financial support for the course was provided by The Ontario Aggregate Resources Corporation (TOARC), and is gratefully acknowledged.
July 6, 2017 - The Aggregate Resources Course being offered at the University of Waterloo in Fall 2017 will be held Fridays from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and covers a variety of topics related to aggregate resources and planning including: geology, economics, licencing, site plans, conflict resolution, cumulative effects, rehabilitation and recent Tribunal decisions. Several field trips are also planned. The course, which is open to industry participants, may be taken at the graduate level or as a standalone course for those who want to learn more about the industry.
