Intermediate Planner

Your Opportunity The Stantec Community Development team brings together the places that make communities feel like home whether it's an urban park, a commercial plaza, or a residential neighborhood. We do this because we're part of the community too and we care about the places where we live-just as much as you do. Join the team that truly designs with community in mind.

Creating value in land development? It's all part of our plan. Developing land into a residential or mixed-use community or into a public space with parks and trails requires a mix of technical skill, creative vision, and insight into development. We merge our expertise to create value for our clients and community. Join us as we develop the ultimate master plan-one that features creative, technical, and innovative project-based solutions which are also economically viable and environmentally responsive.
