The CSLA is a unifying organization that develops and delivers relevant and high quality programs and services, while bringing together and representing at the national level, affiliate organizations, component associations, and professional schools across Canada. The CSLA provides members with a means to promote capabilities and successes, communicate knowledge and concerns, and share matters of common interest. Under the CSLA umbrella, members have the collective visibility, strength and creativity to sustain and enhance the profession of landscape architecture in Canada.
Membership into the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects is facilitated by our recognized Component Associations. In order to be a member of the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects you must first gain full membership to one of the recognized Component Associations.
The Component Associations represent geographically distinct territory, provincial and regional groups of landscape architects covering all provinces and territories in Canada. Depending on where you are living in Canada you will need to contact that local component organization for their details pertaining to membership qualifications. Each component has different local regulation and entrance requirements. Link to COMPONENT ASSOCIATIONS for contact information.
