Canadian Education Standard

The Canadian Education Standard consist of standards and procedures for the assessment of both professional degrees accredited by the CACB, and professional degrees or diplomas not accredited by the CACB. These standards and procedures have been chosen to assure that the assessments are equitable in each case, while accommodating the varied backgrounds and circumstances of the applicants.  They are endorsed by all the following 11 Canadian Architectural Licensing Authorities (CALA):

  • AAA : Alberta Association of Architects
  • AIBC: Architectural Institute of British Columbia
  • MAA: Manitoba Association of Architects
  • AANB: Architects’ Association of New Brunswick/Association des architectes du Nouveau-Brunswick
  • NLAA: Newfoundland and Labrador Association of Architects
  • NWTAA: Northwest Territories Association of Architects
  • NSAA: Nova Scotia Association of Architects
  • OAA: Ontario Association of Architects
  • AAPEI: Architects Association of Prince Edward Island
  • OAQ: Ordre des architectes du Québec
  • SAA: Saskatchewan Association of Architects

The CACB procedures for Certification, and the education standards against which qualifications are measured, have been developed in accordance with both the core principles of the UNESCO/UIA Charter for Architectural Education and the relevant sections of the UIA Accord on Recommended International Standards on Professionalism in Architectural Practice
