The Future of the Profession
Around the world, countries are developing and adopting architectural policies to help shape the future of the profession and to enhance the public’s understanding of the importance of a high-quality built environment. This session will discuss a current collaborative initiative of three national architectural bodies: the Canadian Architectural Licensing Authorities (CALA), the Canadian Council of University Schools of Architecture (CCUSA) and the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC). Discussions will be focused on the development and implementation of an Architecture Policy for Canada and on the current national initiative undertaken in Quebec with similar processes. Both a professional and governmental perspective will be provided.
