Canadian Handbook of Practice

The 3rd edition of the Canadian Handbook of Practice is published as a publicly accessible web-based resource.  Twelve years after the 2nd edition, this third edition is a comprehensive reworking of an essential professional resource created through extensive collaboration by the architectural profession from across Canada. The Handbook is available without cost on a comprehensive, searchable website in both official languages. As a living document, it will be continuously updated and developed over time to reflect the evolution of architectural practice in Canada.
