The Alberta Land Institute (ALI) is an independent research institute based at the University of Alberta. We are committed to research that supports and enhances land use policy in the province of Alberta and beyond.

ALI’s research meets the highest academic standards and has resulted in many graduate theses and peer-reviewed publications in leading journals.
We support research across multiple disciplines – including planning, economics, engineering, law, and others – by providing or helping to secure project funding.

As Albertans make decisions that shape our landscape for generations to come, ALI is proud to contribute an objective foundation for discussion, consensus, and decision-making
