List of planned cities

This is a list of planned cities (sometimes known as planned communities or new towns) by country. Additions to this list should be cities whose overall form (as opposed to individual neighborhoods or expansions) has been determined in large part in advance on a drawing board, or which were planned to a degree which is unusual for their time and place.

CanadaEdit

It is a misconception that the planned cities of Eastern Canada are notable, as well as the view that virtually all cities and towns in Western Canada, which were created after the 1870 Dominion Lands Act (the majority of all such cities), were planned. Although most of these were, indeed, railway towns, founded after surveying and planning by the powerful railway companies during construction of the CPR, Canada's first transcontinental line or the Canadian National Railroad. But this initial start generally only provided one or two streets with a few lots set out. From this, the cities grew organically.
