In Canada, the provision of architectural services is restricted to licensed members of a provincial or territorial architectural regulatory body. Upon completion of the Internship in Architecture Program or the requirements listed under an alternative pathway to registration, an individual may apply to become registered or ‘licensed’ in their home jurisdiction. Generally, an architect must work for an authorized practice or apply for their own authorized practice. It is necessary to check with your jurisdiction for specific practice requirements. It is also possible to practise in more than one jurisdiction, however it is important to check for any varying requirements in each location.
For more information, please consult the registration and licensing section of your respective jurisdiction’s website:
