Landscape Architect

Landscape architects combine artistic and creative perspectives with scientific and engineering knowledge to create, manage and conserve environments that are both functional and attractive. Their goal is to create harmony between natural environments, land features and architectural structures and improve the quality of life in urban and rural environments.

Landscape Architect is a protected title under Alberta's Professional and Occupational Associations Registration Act and Landscape Architects Regulation. This means that to call yourself a Landscape Architect, you must be a registered member of the Alberta Association of Landscape Architects (AALA). You do not have to be registered if you do not use the title Landscape Architect.

What You Need

Registration requires the equivalent of: (1) an approved degree in landscape architecture, (2) at least three years of experience under the supervision of a landscape architect within the previous five years, and (3) successful completion of an approved examination. For official, detailed information about registration requirements, visit the AALA website or contact the AALA.

Working in Alberta

Landscape architects who are registered and in good standing with a regulatory organization elsewhere in Canada may be eligible for registration in Alberta if registered landscape architects in the two jurisdictions have similar responsibilities and competencies. For more information, see "What if I am already certified in another province or territory?" and the Alberta regulatory authority.
