The collective work of the Regulatory Organizations of Architecture in Canada (ROAC) is significantly advanced through the contributions of several national committees comprised of volunteer members from across the country.
- National Standing Committee on the Canadian Architectural Certification Board (CACB)
This Committee acts as the liaison between the Regulatory Organizations of Architecture in Canada (ROAC) and the Canadian Architectural Certification Board (CACB). It also works to maintain and facilitate the relationship between ROAC and the Canadian Council of University Schools of Architecture (CCUSA), the two founding members of the CACB. The Standing Committee supports ROAC by liaising with the CACB and providing ongoing oversight and maintenance of the Conditions for Licensure as approved by ROAC, including the National Competency Standard, Education Standard and Conditions for Accreditation, and the Broadly Experienced Foreign Architect (BEFA) program.
- International Relations Committee (IRC)
This Committee represents the Regulatory Organizations of Architecture in Canada (ROAC) for initiatives and agreements on the international stage. The IRC specifically negotiates and monitors Mutual Recognition Agreements (MRAs) with jurisdictions outside of Canada. These agreements focus on the certification of credentials, the establishment of domain specific assessments, and related trade and labour mobility arrangements.
- Committee for the Examination of Architects in Canada (CExAC)
This Committee oversees and maintains the Examination for Architects in Canada (ExAC) on behalf of the Regulatory Organizations of Architecture in Canada. It is comprised of regional representatives from Atlantic Canada (AANB, AAPEI, NLAA, NSAA), Québec, Ontario, Prairies/Northwest Territories (MAA, NWTAA, SAA), Alberta, and British Columbia who are appointed by the respective Council(s).
Members who are interested in learning more about any of these national committees should consult their provincial or territorial regulator for further information.
