Brief History of the College
Election to fellowship first began in 1964 with the designation of four honourees. In the subsequent 15 years over 30 members had been elected, eliciting demand for a more formalized structure and process to the promotion of fellowship. It was at CSLA Congress 1979 in Charlottetown that the College of Fellows was formally established and the Rules for the Conduct of Operations were adopted. The rules structured and outlined the operation of the College, and developed guidelines for the advancement of members to Fellowship.
In accordance with the Rules for the Conduct of Operations, nominations for Fellowship may be presented to the College by the component organizations and/or the Board of Directors of the CSLA. The final selection is made by a jury of Fellows, comprised of representatives from Canada’s regions. The Fellows-Elect are then ceremoniously inducted into the College during the banquet or other special event of the next CSLA Congress. These funds are used to promote the ideals of the profession of landscape architecture through research and scholarship grants, firmly establishing the Foundation as a significant force in the future of the landscape architectural profession in Canada. Since the inception of CSLA, a total of 237 Fellows have been elected.
