Canadian Society of Landscape Architects celebrates 80th anniversary of foundation

Canada launches medal for landscape architecture

The Canadian Society of Landscape Architects (CSLA) has announced that His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, the Governor General of Canada, has created an award to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the CSLA. 

This Governor General's Medal in Landscape Architecture (GGMLA) will be the highest honour bestowed by the CSLA and it will be awarded every two years.
 
The award, says the CSLA, ‘will be an occasion for Canadians to celebrate and learn about the contributions that professional landscape architects have made to the urban, rural and wilderness environments of Canada over the last century – since Frederick Todd became the first landscape architect to work in Canada in 1900’.

The first GGMLA will be awarded in 2016 and the location of the award ceremony is still to be decided says the CSLA.
