Landscape Architects provide a range of services and work closely with allied professionals that include planners, architects and engineers in the development and restoration work that involves both the built and natural environment.
The mandate of the BCSLA is to foster the development and promotion of landscape architecture in the province of British Columbia. The BCSLA was established by the enactment of the Landscape Architects Act 1968 as a self-governing professional society among whose objectives include the furtherance and maintenance of proper standards of professional practice. This Act restricts the use of the title of Landscape Architect within British Columbia. While this does not prohibit people who are not registered from practicing landscape architecture, it does prohibit them from calling themselves landscape architects.

Selecting a Landscape Architect for Public Sector Projects
The Selecting a Landscape Architect for Public Sector Projects (PDF) is the first in a series of information brochures that are designed to assist in hiring a landscape architect. Watch for a brochure for commercial projects and for selecting a landscape architect for residential projects. Many thanks to an enthusiastic group of volunteers who worked on this initiative.
