    Urban diversity: Planning for multicultural cities
    (Canadian Institute of Planners, 2000) Burstein, Meyer; Grenier, Sylvie

    Managing multicultural issues in cities
    (Canadian Institute of Planners, 2000) Burstein, Meyer

Challenges are mounting: from globalization, from a growing cultural gap between large and small centres, from racism, and from an urgent need to foster civic engagement and integration. Unfortunately, issues surrounding cities have been largely absent from discussions on these matters. Cities have implicated themselves in access and equity remedies, but transport, zoning, and local economic development functions are only now starting to recognize and respond to growing diversity. Greater municipal involvement and better coordination are essential if we are to act constructively.
