Professional Association and Certification

The Accreditation Council of the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects accredits the M.L.A. professional degree. As an accredited degree program, successful completion of the M.L.A. leads directly to the certification of educational credentials that in turn serves as prerequisite to seeking professional licensure.

Requirements for landscape architectural registration vary within jurisdictions and applicants should confirm current details from the appropriate professional association. In general, the practice of landscape architecture in Canada is governed by legislation enacted by the individual provinces. In most provinces, the right to practice landscape architecture and accept responsibility is limited to those who are registered landscape architects in the province where the work is being completed.

In British Columbia, the practice of landscape architecture is regulated by the British Columbia Society of Landscape Architects (BCSLA). Students are encouraged to make contact with the profession by applying for admission to the BCSLA as a Student Member. Interested students should contact the BCSLA.
