Landscape Architect

Landscape architects combine artistic and creative perspectives with scientific and technical knowledge. They create new environments and help manage and conserve natural environments. They strive to create harmony between natural environments, land features, infrastructures, and architectural structures. Their goal is to improve quality of life in urban and rural environments.

Under Alberta’s Professional and Occupational Associations Registration Act [pdf] and Landscape Architects Regulation [pdf], Landscape Architect is a protected title. This means that to call yourself a Landscape Architect, you must register as a member of the Alberta Association of Landscape Architects (AALA).

You do not have to register if you do not use the title Landscape Architect.

What You Need

To register as a landscape architect in Alberta, you need:

  • An accredited degree in landscape architecture
  • At least 3 years of experience under the supervision of a landscape architect within the previous 5 years
  • Successful completion of the Landscape Architect Registration Examination of the Council of Landscape Architectural Registration Boards

If you do not have an accredited degree in landscape architecture, you can apply for the AALA Pre-Internship Program.

For details about registration requirements, contact the AALA or visit the AALA website.

Working in Alberta

Landscape architects who are registered and in good standing with a regulatory body elsewhere in Canada may be able to register in Alberta if their scope of practice and competencies are similar.

For more information, see What if I am already certified in another province or territory in Canada? and the AALA website.

The certification information in this profile may change at any time and without notice. Before making any career decisions, we advise you to contact the regulatory organization or visit their website for the most updated information.
