The Canadian Society of Landscape Architects (CSLA) is a professional organization with over 2,800 landscape architects, associate landscape architects, and students of landscape architecture as members represented by provincial and territorial associations. In addition, the CSLA accredits several academic landscape architecture programs across the nation.
Landscape architects today are engaged in the design, planning and management of urban, rural and natural environments in all Canadian provinces and territories and in many countries worldwide. Canadian landscape architects are well-regarded for their vision, creativity, sensitivity and practicality in all aspects of professional practice, creating unique functional outdoor spaces for our citizens, as well as protecting and enhancing the environment. The CSLA is the organization which gives landscape architects a national voice and, though its provincial component associations, regulates the profession of landscape architecture through licensing or certification of its members.
