Jason LeBlanc

OAA, LEED Green Associate
Transportation, Vancouver

The son of a carpenter and grandson of a developer, Jason’s interest in the built environment began at an early age and evolved into a keen interest in shaping healthy cities. As an architect, he found the perfect intersection of his passions while practicing in the civic and transit sectors on projects that transform urban mobility, reduce resource consumption, and promote equity and livability in cities. Responsible for delivering some of the largest and most complex infrastructure projects in Canada, his expertise ranges from transit area planning and transportation infrastructure to transit-oriented developments and multi-family residential design, contributing to community building projects at multiple scales. Throughout all his work, Jason leads with a focus on design excellence and socially equity, resulting in high-quality, meaningful projects for clients and the broader public.

Unique Perspective

Having experienced working on the client side for four years while based in Toronto, Jason gained a unique perspective into the implementation of large and complex projects from a client’s point of view. He was also a member of several project-specific design review panels, where he developed expertise in executing projects with an elevated quality of design within public procurement models.

Metrolinx GO Transit Design Excellence Guidelines
During his time as an architect on the client's side, Jason worked in partnership with Perkins&Will to establish a comprehensive set of Design Excellence Guidelines that would apply to GO Transit station buildings, platform canopies, pedestrian bridges and parking structures across the system.
"Quality public transit is one of the most effective means for advancing social equity and livability in our cities.”
