Abstract New forms of development are emerging in suburban nodes located close to the city centres of Canada's metropolitan areas. This transformation is occurring primarily in the most economically developed suburbs. We base our study on a representative case of this economic development found in the Montréal metropolitan area. The evolution of the planning strategies adopted by the stakeholders of urban development economic development stakeholders during its two principal phases of land development (1950-1980 and 1980-2000) is investigated. By drawing on regulation theory, we relate the borough's economic progress to its planning strategies. Based on document review and interviews conducted with stakeholders involved in the urban development process (from both the private and public sectors), qualitative data was collected to compare land-use planning practices established during the two phases under study. Analysis of economic progress is based on a distinction between fordism and post-fordism. We conclude, therefore, that the dynamics of urban morphology are influenced by the evolution from a functionalist to a niche approach to urban planning.
