This is a list of planned cities (sometimes known as planned communities or new towns) by country. Additions to this list should be cities whose overall form (as opposed to individual neighborhoods or expansions) has been determined in large part in advance on a drawing board, or which were planned to a degree which is unusual for their time and place.

Canada

Planned cities of Eastern Canada are notable. In Western Canada, however, virtually all cities and towns created after the 1870 Dominion Lands Act (the majority of all such cities) were planned. Most were railway towns, surveyed and subdivided by the powerful railway companies. For example, both Medicine Hat, Alberta; and Swift Current, Saskatchewan, were founded by the Canadian Pacific Railway during construction of Canada's main transcontinental line. The only cities in Western Canada that grew organically were those – usually founded before 1870 – that grew up around fur-trade forts, police outposts or Christian missions.

Mexico

Most Mexican cities founded during the period of New Spain were planned right from the beginning. There are historical maps showing the designs of most cities, however as time passed and the cities grew, the original planning disappeared. In recent times, a number of tourist cities have been built, such as Cancun or Puerto Peñasco; the latest city to be planned in Mexico was Delicias. Some of these cities are:
