The Canada-Guyana Partnership for Community Planning Project 2009-2012 is a partnership agreement between the Canadian Institute of Planners (CIP) and the Central Housing and Planning Authority (CH&PA) which concluded in March 2012. The principal objective of the Project was the training of Guyanese Public Sector Professionals and Community leaders by means of a capacity-building program designed and delivered by Canadian and Guyanese trainers. The training was delivered in the context of the preparation of Community Development Plans (CDPs).
In addition to training and capacity building, the Canada-Guyana Partnership for Community Planning Project afforded an opportunity to share and promote good planning practice occurring throughout the Region and build partnerships among like-minded Organizations. To this end, the Project hosted a series of five (5) Regional/International Events over two (2) years. Three (3) of these Events were hosted in Guyana and two (2) in Canada.
Other project collaborators involved in delivering training activities are the Guyana Lands & Surveys Commission (GL&SC) and the University of Guyana-University of the West Indies- University of Suriname Consortium in Planning.
