Recognition of ARE to be Sunset

November 30, 2018

The Council of the Manitoba Association of Architects (MAA) has determined that the Architect Registration Examination (ARE) administered by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) will formally cease to be recognized as satisfying the examination requirements for registration in Manitoba, as of December 31, 2018.

This means that, with the exception of those eligible for registration in Manitoba by way of one of the four existing Mutual Recognition Agreements or the Broadly Experience Foreign Architect Program, effective January 1, 2019, any other applicant will be required to provide evidence of successful completion of the Examination for Architects in Canada (ExAC) to satisfy the examination component of the MAA's requirements for registration.
