    Hey there,

    I'm an undergrad at UofT pursuing Urban Studies, really wanting to get out into the world and gain some relevant work experience in my field. It would be amazing to intern at an urban planning firm, do you guys know of urban planning firms in Toronto? Or where else would be good work experience for undergrad students (besides the Government)?

    Any feedback will be great! : )

    They're also the place that every urban planner wants to work for.

    They are almost never hiring unless it is for co-op.

    The CIP website has a good list of planning consulting firms you can look through. They are from all over the country, so you have to sort through them, but many are easier to get into than Urban Strategies.
