Welcome to the Canadian Architectural Licensing Authorities Website

The Canadian Architectural Licensing Authorities (CALA) represents nationally the eleven architectural regulators in Canada. These eleven provincial and territorial regulatory bodies are responsible for setting the standards for entry into the profession and for issuing registration/licenses to those who meet established standards of qualifications and practice.  The regulators individually regulate the practice of architecture in order that the public interest is protected with in their respective jurisdictions.

Through CALA the Canadian architectural regulators work collectively to develop and adopt nationally recognized standards and programs that help to meet their regulatory responsibilities as well as the needs of the architectural profession.
