dc.description.abstract The out-migration of young adults from the Maritime provinces is a demographic trend that has gained attention since a handful of highly publicized reports highlighted the issue in 2014. Participatory planning processes have been demonstrated to improve trust between stakeholders and government, to strengthen communities, to build pride in place, and to result in projects which are well-received by residents. In light of these considerations, have young people in Nova Scotia been presented with realistic opportunities to shape their largest city? This research outlines current levels of engagement in municipal consultation processes among young adults in the Halifax Regional Municipality, explores perceptions of the importance of engaging young people among planning professionals, and proposes strategies to improve the municipality’s community engagement strategy so that it is more inclusive of young people. en_CA
