Academic Certification

CACB’s Certification confirms the individual’s academic qualifications compliance with the Canadian Education Standard (CES) in Architecture and therefore, with the standards for entry to the profession.

CACB works on the behalf of the Canadian Architectural Licensing Authorities (CALA) to assess and certify that the educational qualifications of individuals holding professional degrees or diplomas in architecture meet the Canadian Educational Standard requirements.

CACB grants and issues Certification to applicants who meet the Education Standard and maintains a National Register of those certified and confidential records of all pertinent documentation for all applicants.

The CES assesses academic qualifications against the following six subject areas:

1. General education and electives
2. History of architecture and human behaviour
3. Environment
4. Design and graphic communications
5. Technical systems
6. Knowledge and the profession
