Belanger exploring the role of traditional city planning

Dr. Yale Belanger (Native American Studies/Health Sciences) is the co-investigator on a $343,968 project housed at the University of Saskatchewan.

Belanger will work with University of Saskatchewan researchers Ryan Walker (Principal Investigator) and Loleen Berdahl to explore the role of traditional city planning in Canadian Prairie cities and how it has marginalized Aboriginal people.

The researchers will examine how city planning can be improved to help strengthen bonds between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal residents which could ultimately help to build stronger, healthier communities.
