Intern architects are admitted to the AIBC Register as associates and permitted to use the designation of “Intern Architect AIBC”. This designation reflects their enrolment in the Internship in Architecture Program (IAP), a national program that provides a pathway for intern architects to become registered as full-fledged architects. The AIBC oversees the Internship in Architecture Program in British Columbia.
As associates of the AIBC, intern architects are required to comply with the Architects Act, AIBC Bylaws and the AIBC’s Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct. To review the specific rights and responsibilities for associates, see Registration Types: Associates.
This section provides key information and resources for intern architects already enrolled in the IAP and registered with the AIBC. For more information about becoming an Intern Architect AIBC, please see Become an Architect AIBC, Internship in Architecture Program.
