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 nonsense to say that the planned cities of Eastern Canada are notable and that virtually all cities and towns in Western Canada, that 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 CPRCanada'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.

Most Mexican cities founded during the period of New Spain were planned from the beginning.
