The Canadian Centre for Livable Places (CCLP) began in ca. 1989 as a result of the success of the Heritage Canada Foundation's Main Street Program. John Weiler acted as director for the Centre throughout its operation. The CCLP aimed to facilitate mediation and negotiation between developers, municipal officials and citizens' groups. Its actions included symposiums, an occasional newsletter ("Resolution") providing educational services, applied research, and facilitating negotiation and mediation. The CCLP ceased operations ca. 1993.
