Architects registered with the AIBC may seek opportunities to practise outside of British Columbia or internationally under the jurisdiction of another architectural regulator. The AIBC is committed to working with our counterparts in other jurisdictions to streamline cross-border registration and increase opportunities for architects to contribute to the built environment.
The AIBC participates in a number of Mutual Recognition Agreements (MRAs). These MRAs are formal agreements between architectural regulators in different jurisdictions to mutually recognize the architectural credentials and qualifications of their registrants, and to provide a path for them to obtain registration/licensure across participating jurisdictions.
This section provides information for Architects AIBC who are seeking registration/licensure in another jurisdiction. If you are an architect registered in another jurisdiction and you want to register with the AIBC, please see Become an Architect AIBC.
Qualification requirements vary for each MRA; please review detailed information and requirements for your specific circumstance.
