Guidebook series: Best practices in brownfield redevelopment

Guidebook series. Learn best practices in brownfield redevelopment

This guidebook series on best practices in brownfield redevelopment can help enhance your municipality's brownfield programs. The guides can be used by Canadian cities and communities of all sizes at any stage of brownfield redevelopment: from those ready to start taking action, to those with experience in revitalizing underused sites.

Each of the free guidebooks offers practical ideas, examples and lessons. They are designed to help municipal staff overcome challenges and facilitate redevelopment.

The guides support the Leadership in Brownfield Renewal program's seven-step best practices framework, based on the experiences of Canadian municipalities.
