Landscape architecture as a profession strives to balance human use and enjoyment of land with conservation and health of the environment. The primary goal of the Landscape Architecture Canada Foundation (LACF) is to support the fundamental ideals expressed through the profession of landscape architecture. These ideals include but are not limited to:

  • conserving and managing environmental resources;
  • promoting sustainable development;
  • accommodating the needs of humans in the environment; and
  • enhancing and improving aesthetic quality in the landscape.

Objective and Activities

The objective of the Landscape Architecture Canada Foundation is to promote the ideals of the profession of landscape architecture through research, communication and scholarship.

To achieve this objective, LACF solicits, receives and manages gifts, grants and legacies; sets policies and establishes program priorities; and reviews, funds and communicates its activities and programs.

Over the past fifteen years, LACF has funded a wide range of projects including historic research, oral histories, professional education programs, design research, habitat design guidelines, environmental education and awareness programs, and design communication projects.

Grants Program Opportunities

The Landscape Architecture Canada Foundation (LACF) awards grants varying from $2,000 for graduate students and up to $10,000 for professionals for research, communication and scholarship activities. Proposals will be evaluated based on criteria set forth by the LACF Board.

Funding to support the LACF grants program has been made possible through the generous donations of the CSLA College of Fellows, CSLA component associations, individual and group donors, and through bequests to the Foundation.
