CSLA and Component Associations Terms of Reference

The CSLA was founded in 1934 and for several decades was the sole association promoting the profession of landscape architecture in Canada until provincial components were created starting in the 1960’s. The CSLA and component associations have since collaborated on an ongoing basis however, until now, no formal agreement supports this relationship. The CSLA strives to unite professionals around the country while strengthening the value an individual member receives. We believe that member service and the community of peers can be enhanced by concluding agreements with the components. Components serve as connectors between the CSLA and its members. A clear, solid working relationship between the CSLA and components is therefore vital. In addition, components are platforms for sharing knowledge and foster partnership among all stakeholders by optimizing individual strengths to serve the members effectively and advance the profession.
