2022 Congress

The CSLA-APALA Congress will be held from Thursday 9 June 2022 to Saturday 11 June 2022 at the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront 


While our world is rocked by a climate crisis, a pandemic, social injustice, and volatile economic conditions, landscape architecture firms strive to attract and develop talented personnel, keep abreast of new practices and technologies, and compete in an international market. Furthermore, landscape architects find themselves giving more and more of their attention, concern, and talent to fulfill their professional responsibilities.

The good news is that the contribution and abilities of landscape architects are urgently needed, recognized, and valued. Communities demand quality public spaces, conservation of the natural environment and celebration of great design. Diverse groups call out to be recognized and engaged in our work in authentic ways.

The 2022 CSLA-APALA Congress will explore strategies that inspire practitioners and the communities we serve. Join us to uncover ways to be energized, effective and healthy. Consider how our work with others can build better results and inspire confidence in the profession. Explore how landscape architects demonstrate solutions to global challenges in local contexts.

Inspiring Landscape Architects: Meet the people who inspire landscape architects; discover ways to boost your work and your well-being.

Inspiring Practices: Learn what excites leaders in the field, and how landscape architects can inspire public confidence.

Inspiring Landscapes: Discover new work, natural and vernacular landscapes that inspire healthy settlements and designed places.

The CSLA and APALA welcome members and allied professionals to travel to the East Coast (in person or online) to renew their passion for landscape architecture and to meet old and new friends. Congress events, tours and local landscapes, culture and food will leave you feeling uplifted and inspired.
