Only graduates of professional degrees in architecture are eligible to apply for CACB Certification.
The following degrees are the most common types of professional degrees eligible for academic certification:

  • Bachelor of Architecture Program requiring a minimum of five years of study (or 4 years following CEGEP in Quebec); or
  • Master of Architecture Program requiring a minimum of three years of study following an unrelated bachelor’s degree, or two years following a four-year related pre-professional degree.

Certain variations from the types of degree listed above may be considered as long as candidates submit proof that their degree meets the requirement for licensure in the country where the degree was granted. Contact the Certification Coordinator at info@cacb.ca if you hold such degree.

Please make sure you are eligible to apply for certification. Otherwise, a 15% administrative fee will be deducted from your application fee before we return your file.
