CACB, which receives its authority from the Canadian Architectural Licensing Authorities (CALA) and the Canadian Council of University Schools of Architecture (CCUSA), certifies educational qualifications and professional programs at Canadian universities for individual architectural graduates;
In Canada, there are 11 university schools of architecture that have been granted by CACB accreditation for their professional programs. To search for CACB-accredited programs, please click here.
Non-Accredited Degree Evaluations
Applicants who wish to take the exams, but do not have a NAAB or CACB-accredited degree must obtain an evaluation report from Education Evaluation Services for Architects (EESA-NCARB). The Nebraska Board requires the applicant to have met the NCARB Education Requirement with a degree in the field of architecture. The EESA-NCARB program evaluates the credentials of foreign-educated and broadly-experienced architects against the NCARB Education Standard. Their report is to be submitted directly to the Nebraska Board.
