Recipient of the 2021 Wayne Daniel Smith Scholarship

“I would like to thank the CIP/ICU Planning Student Trust Fund for selecting me as the recipient of the Wayne Daniel Smith Scholarship. The potential of natural assets to change patterns in land use planning and municipal service delivery must receive increased recognition. Municipal natural asset management can positively contribute to municipal, provincial, and federal climate adaptation goals while building in increased climate resiliency for adverse weather events. On a personal note, this award speaks to the importance of planning research completed at the graduate level and I am honoured to continue a legacy of student researchers across Canada.”

“I am incredibly grateful to receive the CIP/ICU Planning Student Trust Fund Dillon Consulting Limited Scholarship. I could not believe it when I got the news and I am so thankful, what a way to finish my degree!
