Growing Pains: An Evergreen Cityworks and The Globe and Mail Documentary on Urban Growth

by ERA Architects

‘As our population continues to grow, how will the region accommodate both present and future needs?’ This is the question that Growing Pains asks after summarizing how urban growth in the greater horseshoe evolved over the past half century and in light of the prospect of another two million residents arriving in the region over the next 20 years.

The provincial Places to Grow Act was passed in 2005 with the hope of curbing unsustainable growth through urban density and Greenbelt protection. The three-part documentary series, directed by Gregory Greene explores the catalysts that led to the creation of the act, the related challenges the region has faced and what the future holds.
