In the 2021-2023 CSLA Strategic Plan approved in June, 2020, the issue of research was identified as a priority.
The importance of research in the profession cannot be understated:
- LACF exists to promote scholarship and research
- Scholars in landscape architecture are often published in journals and author books
- The Canadian Landscape Charter advocates for expanding knowledge in the profession
- Accreditation standards for curricula include the requirement to include research and scholarly methods in graduate level programs (MLA programs)
