The Principles of Traffic and Transportation - 20 Week Evening Lecture Series

Start/End Date: Wednesday, September 12, 2018 12:00 AM - Wednesday, January 30, 2019 12:00 AM
District: Ontario

The seminars will start September 12th and continue until February 2019 (total 20). The seminars will take place every Wednesday between 5:30 - 7:00pm at the Markham Civic Centre located at 101 Town Centre Blvd. Markham Ontario.

 

Introduction
The transportation system is being asked to play a greater role in society these days as we strive to move people, fuel the economy, be more energy efficient, and address the role of the automobile in climate change.

These are broad themes that will affect the transportation profession for years to come, however at the 'street level' there is still the day-today of designing, operating, evaluating and improving the local transportation system in our cities and towns.

Whether you are new to the transportation industry, are looking to refresh your knowledge on transportation principles, or if you have taken on a new responsibility or are working in a ‘niche area’ and wish to broaden your knowledge, PTRC’s 20 week evening lecture series offers a cost-effective and time-inexpensive training course that will benefit both the participating employee and their employer.

This evening seminar program has been running in Europe for over fifteen years. After the success of the program in Toronto from 2011 - 2014, PTRC will again be running the series from September 2018 to February 2019.

Structure
The series will consist of 20 lectures delivered by local experienced transportation practitioners from consultancies, local authorities and governments, who are experts in their
field. Presenters will be drawn from consulting firms, local agencies, academia and other government bodies. Each seminar will cover a specific topic and the content has been devised as far as possible to cover the typical principles of a transportation scheme.

Tutors will be encouraged to design interactive sessions to accompany their talk and there will be plenty of time for discussion and questions, and may also open up opportunities for networking.

ED Book Club: Transforming Ottawa- Canada’s Capital in the Eyes of Jacques Gréber

Start/End Date: Wednesday, November 21, 2018 7:00 PM - Wednesday, November 21, 2018 8:00 PM
District: Eastern District

Fox & Feather Pub and Grill
283 Elgin Street, Ottawa, Ontario

On Wednesday, November 21st the Book Club will meet from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the Fox & Feather Pub and Grill to discuss Alain Miguelez’s book, Transforming Ottawa: Canada’s Capital in the Eyes of Jacques Gréber. All are welcome to attend!

About Transforming Ottawa
“Transforming Ottawa is an invitation to wander the streets of one of Canada’s most beautiful cities, as if you were transported back to the late 1930s, and discover why and how the city changed so much in the decades that followed. If you live in Ottawa, chances are you’ve heard of the Gréber Plan. Adopted by the federal government in 1950, this blueprint for the nation’s capital was almost entirely implemented over the decades and, in many ways, has defined our city as we know it today. But what did Ottawa look like before the Gréber Plan? What did that Plan see as the city’s burning problems, and how did it propose to resolve them? In hindsight, how did the solutions play out? Transforming Ottawa is based on the rediscovery, at the National Archives, of a large collection of hauntingly beautiful street scenes of Ottawa in 1937-38, commissioned by Jacques Gréber himself. The book looks at our city as Gréber saw it in 1937, when he first set foot in Ottawa, describes his famous 1950 plan, and discusses its outcomes and effects.”
