Welcome to the ROAC portal dedicated to training
Welcome to the Regulatory Organizations of Architecture in Canada (ROAC) training portal. The continuing education activities offered here are aimed at architects, architect trainees and all professionals interested in the various aspects of the practice of architecture in Canada. Produced by the ROAC or by provincial architect regulators, these courses aim to improve understanding of the regulatory bodies of the profession, the regulatory context as well as the role and responsibilities of the architect.
The ROAC represents the eleven provincial and territorial regulators of the profession of architecture in Canada. These regulatory bodies are responsible for setting the standards for entry into the profession and for issuing registration/licenses to those who meet established standards of qualifications and practice. These regulators individually regulate the practice of architecture so that the public interest is protected within their respective province or territory.
Through ROAC, the Canadian architectural regulators work collectively to develop and adopt nationally recognized standards and programs which meet their regulatory responsibilities as well as the needs of the architectural profession.
