CREATE A VISION FOR
CANADIAN COMMUNITIES

Architecture impacts our lives every single day. It inspires us, shapes us, reflects us and directly affects our physical and psychological health. What we build says something about how we live, and who we are both individually and as a society.

In addition to impacting our well-being and identity, architecture impacts the environment. We, as a society, are facing challenges that need to be addressed.

Human induced climate change is causing extreme weather events with more frequency, threatening natural ecosystems and human settlements. Conventional fossil fuels are being depleted and irresponsible resource extraction is causing catastrophic damage.

Rapid urbanization is introducing new social and health challenges for people while our deteriorating urban infrastructure is in much need of renewal. Architecture and related design professions – together with all citizens – must rise to these challenges through resilient and sustainable design.

We all deserve healthy, safe and vibrant communities – communities that excite us and reflect who we are as Canadians.

The Canadian Architectural Licensing Authorities (CALA), in collaboration with the Canadian Council of University Schools of Architecture (CCUSA) and the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC), are leading a series of consultations focused on creating a renewed vision for Architecture in Canada.
