Scope for Architects in Canada
« on: October 06, 2005, 04:51:29 PM »
Hi all!
The US , Uk and now Australia have always been in the buzz when it comes to further studies and  theres a fair no of architects making a move to these countries every yr. I am another one contemplating on the issue of further studies...the big question is ...where?
I have heard a few ppl going to Canada...which seems to have very good univs....is much more economical when compared to US and the UK and unlike Australia it does allow work period of atleast one or even two yrs after studies.
It sound like a fairly good option when taking into consideration all these factors. Moreover Canada has alwasy kept its doors wide open for immigration.
Inspite all this I havent come across too many ppl who seem to know or have bothered to know about Canada. Is it because after studies the scope for a descent job is very limited or is it just a mob phsycology thts working in the favour of other countries.
I am really thinking about Canada as a serious option...If theres anyone who can throw light on the situation existing for an architect over there pls do help.
Any sort of guidance would be appreciated.

Thanks.

there are good schools in canada which are not as recognised as the american universities but have excellent reputation. what do you intend to do? M-arch?
UBC, mcgill, univ of manitoba are supposedly good schools. univ of toronto is known for its urban design and planning.

one of the reasons may be because of climate. vancouver, britsh columbia have very cold winters with often perpetual seeming depressing weather. when compared to the u.s, with the number of architectural schools with good reputation by far exceed canadian schools. and to mention some of the important forerunners ofthe modern and post modern arch. many from the u.s. design oppurtunities many.

its also important to mention the growing canadian architecture. anyway, iwas just giving a few points to ponder over.

good luck.

Visit www.canadiandesi.ca and do a search with Architecture on the search bar. You will get a fair idea.
