CAA Mission Statement

 

The CAA advocates for the way that projects are procured, contracted, delivered and valued.


We will represent, advocate for and support practicing architects to build a positive business environment for the architectural firms in Alberta.
 
In the pursuit of our mission, we will provide leadership and support to architectural firms and build a common forum for them to work together.  We will work cooperatively with:
  • The Alberta Association of Architects, our provincial regulatory body;
  • The Royal Architectural Institute of Canada, our national partners, and
  • The Consulting Engineers of Alberta, our industry partners in practice.
 

Background

 
Architects are professional advisers who provide planning, programming, design, co-ordination and integration, project management and other related services.  We aspire to excellence, value and creativity in service of our clients and our communities. We put our expert knowledge at the disposal of our clients and serve their interests as if they were our own.  
 
To succeed, architects must work in a healthy business environment. As our business voice, the Consulting Architects of Alberta will help to build a strong profession and opportunities for Alberta firms.  We will provide a business voice of leadership and advocacy and a forum for communication of common cause between architectural firms and with our industry partners.  
 
The Consulting Architects of Alberta is a non-profit society registered in 2009 under the Alberta Societies Act.  It has a unique mandate and will work cooperatively together with each related industry organization.  
 
The principles of participation and of the relationship between CAA member firms is spelled out in the Charter of the Consulting Architects of Alberta. All architects are welcome to comment on and view these principles upon request.
