The Urban Development Institute-Edmonton Metro is a non-profit, member-driven organization representing leaders in the land development industry in all communities throughout the Edmonton Metropolitan region. Our members are development companies and the professionals involved in our industry, including planners, surveyors, landscape architects, engineers, contractors, finance managers, and others. Together with municipalities who regulate and set policy related to land use, we are important city builders. We build the communities where people live, the roads they travel, the buildings they work in, and the parks where families gather.


Members elect a Board of Directors. Board of Directors set organizational direction, priorities, and budget. Committees report to Board on policy and issues. Regional and Standing Working Groups advocate for technical change and provide guidance and support to Committees. Download our governance flowchart.

A look back at why and when we started.


Our industry is dynamic and evolving, and so too are companies and the communities we serve. But our values remain the same.


Research and market intelligence enables us to be at the forefront of innovation.
