Information for Urban Affairs in Canada.
Barcelo, Michel; And Others
The Canadian Council on Urban and Regional Research has as one of its objects "to assist all efforts throughout Canada to gather, analyse, co-ordinate and distribute available knowledge." In this report the Council makes available the outline of an information exchange service that would deliver the whole range of pertinent urban experience to those who have to understand and manage urban affairs. These proposals are based on the Canadian experience of their three authors who have given much of the past two years to the problems and performance of a Canadian urban information service. The report shows that Canadians of both languages can be far better served than ever before with urban information, whichever the language in which the experience was first recorded. The authors indicate why fuller exchange of urban information is essential to the future of urban Canada, and how the modes of that exchange can be made self-adjusting to the changing needs of Canadian users.
