Accredited University Programs

Accredited programs in landscape architecture in Canada are those that have met the standards of the Landscape Architecture Accreditation Council (LAAC). These programs have been evaluated and found to provide the required instruction, faculty, facilities and financial support to deliver a sound program as demanded by the profession and the public. Accreditation reviews take place every five years. Programs accredited by CSLA through LAAC are also recognized by the ASLA Landscape Architecture Accreditation Board (LAAB). Similarly LAAC also recognizes program accredited by LAAB (further information below).
