The following text is from the CACB Conditions and Terms for Accreditation:
In Canada, all provincial/territorial associations/institutes/orders recommend a degree from an accredited professional degree program as a prerequisite for licensure. The Canadian Architectural Certification Board (CACB), which is the sole agency authorized to accredit Canadian professional degree programs in architecture, recognizes two types of accredited degrees: the Master of Architecture (M.Arch) and the Bachelor of Architecture (B. Arch). A program may be granted a six-year, three-year, or two-year term of accreditation, depending on its degree of conformance with established educational standards.
Master’s degree programs may consist of a pre-professional undergraduate degree and a professional graduate degree, which, when earned sequentially, comprise an accredited professional education. However, the pre-professional degree is not, by itself, recognized as an accredited degree.
Statement on the Architecture Program’s current accreditation status:
The last CACB site visit took place in February 2018. Subsequently, the Master of Architecture program was formally granted a full accreditation term of six years effective July 1, 2018. The term will end on June 30, 2024.
The next CACB Maintenance Accreditation Visit is scheduled to take place in spring 2024.
