CALGARY - The Canadian Institute of Planners (CIP) has presented Keltie Craig of Golder Associates with the 2012 President’s Award for Young Planners. Craig was chosen as this year's recipient because of her vision, leadership and professional achievement as a Canadian planner under the age of 35.
Craig is a planner with Golder's Planning and Landscape Architecture Division, created when Golder merged with HB Lanarc in 2011. Since joining HB Lanarc four years ago, Craig has worked on a range of municipal and regional planning projects, including a comprehensive sustainability plan for Canada's Capital Region; Port Coquitlam's Environmental Strategic Plan; and a Cycling Plan for Ladysmith, BC. She recently led the development of CIP’s Healthy Communities Practice Guide.
"Planning inspires me to make positive changes in the communities I work with," says Craig. "Winning the President's Award for Young Planners is a recognition of the work I've been doing—along with my colleagues at Golder—to build healthier, more sustainable communities."
