We have taught for free Seventy-Six (76) aspiring foreign-trained newcomer architects in our practice.

We receive many applications for our free one-month training and have decided to offer it online again, free of any charge. The eligible candidates must:

2. Eligible and willing to register with a provincial association of architects within Canada.
3. Possess a proficient command of written and spoken English, at a minimum, an IELTS score of 7.5 or its recognized equivalents.
4. Be a newcomer to Canada for less than three (3) years.

6. Have not held a job in architecture or general construction for more than six (6) months.
