Housed in the Department of Art History at the University of Toronto, this new initiative offers undergraduate courses, experiential learning, and internships in the field of the architecture and landscapes of Canada.

This project is led by Professor Christy Anderson and Professor Joseph L. Clarke, along with Postdoctoral Fellow Dr Jessica Mace.
