Careers

Training for Newcomers

We have been offering free training to newcomers to Canada who were trained in architecture and who can not get into our industry due to lack of Canadian experience. Every month we take on a trainee and teach them the National Building Code-2019 Alberta Edition, construction drawings in the first two weeks and get them to redraw a previously completed project. We have had over 40 newcomers trained so far! We do not get the trainees to work on any revenue-generating projects for us.

 

Admission Criteria:

  1. Newcomer or recent immigrant to Canada in the last three years.
  2. No previous employment in architecture in Canada for more than three months.
  3. Eligible to be accredited by the Canadian Architectural Certification Board; preference will be with M.Arch. degree holders.

  5. A minimum of CLB score of 8 or overall IELTS score of 7.5; if the first language was not English.
