Linda L. Allen FCIP, RPP  has worked in communities of all sizes and challenges across Canada. Early in her career, she worked with the Alberta Task Force on Urbanization, at a time when the province was transitioning from a predominantly rural to an increasingly urbanized society. With the City of Ottawa, Ms. Allen was among the first vanguard to solidly embed citizen involvement in planning. The resources of the day allowed planners to set up a visible presence in neighbourhoods, and her offices hummed with people of many talents and perspectives.

She heads up CitySpaces’ policy and research team and works with a team of young, enthusiastic planners.
