About MPS

Our History / Our Future

The company was originally formed in Edmonton in 1996 under the name Municipal Planning Services (Alberta) Ltd.  In 2009 the company was purchased from the founder and restructured to allow for the expansion of planning services that we now provide our clients.  Over time, the company has diversified and grown to become more adaptable to meet the changing needs of our clients and to engage in a broader array of planning project work. These changes have resulted in the expansion of our team to include additional planners, designers and planning technicians. Today, MPS's well-rounded team offers a range of consulting services to clients exclusively in the public and non-profit sectors throughout Alberta. Planning work is supported by in-house services that include GIS, mapping, graphics production, project management and community consultation. For projects that require expertise in other areas, our affiliations with reputable professionals allow us to seamlessly form inter-disciplinary teams.

 MPS today is committed to retaining what our clients value most: our focus on providing planning services to the public and non-profit sectors; our expertise in matters pertaining to planning statutes and land use bylaws and our commitment to long term, collaborative relationships with our clients to help ensure the continued success of rural communities and small towns throughout Canada.  There is big value in celebrating local diversity and MPS is committed to working with small places and rural communities to help ensure their continued vibrancy and resilience.
