The Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC), also known since 2012 as Architecture Canada, is a Canadian association representing over 3,600 architects, and faculty and graduates of Canadian Schools of Architecture. It was founded in 1907.
RAIC is the voice for architecture and its practice in Canada. It provides the national framework for the development and recognition of architectural excellence.
In 2006, the RAIC signed on for the 2030 °Challenge, which urges the global architecture community to adopt targets to ensure building practices are carbon-neutral by 2030.
There are three classes of membership in the RAIC: Members, Fellows (post nominal FRAIC), and Honorary Fellows.
