ABOUT

We are the architectural profession, its educators, its advocates and its regulators, and through the Rise for Architecture initiative, we are speaking to all those who are charged with the responsibility of collaborating in the design of a safe, healthy and uplifting built environment that protects and nurtures the public and the planet. We have a deep regard and concern for the quality of the built environment and its powerful impact on society at every level – physically, spiritually, socially, culturally, economically and more. We are seeking to engage the public in a conversation in an effort to foster a shared awareness of the value of quality planning and development and its benefit to society, and the importance of taking appropriate actions to support these goals. Everyone is a stakeholder and should join this discussion.

Our commitment to those who participate is to listen and integrate your concerns into a final vision statement that calls on all involved in shaping the built environment, from professionals to public bodies and governments, to collaboratively develop policies and calls to action that will ensure healthy and strong communities for all Canadians.
