Guidelines for Postings

  • Postings must not exceed 500 words. Ensure heading descriptions are consistent with body text.
  • In order to ensure compliance with the Architect’s Act, all job postings for protected titles, including Architect, Architectural Technologist, and Intern Architect must contain the following requirement in the job posting:
    “Must be registered with the AIBC, or eligible to be registered in the province of British Columbia.”
  • Do not use position titles that are confusing or misleading. Given the AIBC’s role as a regulator of the architectural profession, including professional classifications, titles and standards of conduct, the institute is not able to publicize submissions that are contradictory to existing standards and requirements. For example, advertisements for the following “unofficial” job titles are not permissible:
    • Architectural Designer;
    • Architectural Technician;
    • Architectural CAD Draftsperson

Conversely, only those individuals registered with the AIBC as an “Architect”, “Intern Architect”, “Architectural Technologist” or other recognized title permitted under the Architects Act may refer to themselves as such, including when advertising for a position.

For further information and examples, refer to AIBC Bulletin 32: Right to Title – The Legal Use of Architect and Derivative Title or contact the institute prior to submitting your advertisement.

Requests for Proposal and Expressions of Interest

All RFPs and EOIs submitted to the AIBC will be reviewed and approved by the Professional Practice Advisor prior to publication. Please submit your complete package, in PDF format, to classifieds@aibc.ca.  All RFP and EOI submissions will be reviewed on a “first come, first served” basis. There is no deadline for submission or fixed publication date.

Terms of Use

By submitting a posting to AIBC Classifieds, all advertisers confirm that their posting is accurate and in compliance with the Architects Act, AIBC Bylaws and Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct, including satisfying the requirements pertaining to accurate representation of professional qualifications, status, title and project credit. The AIBC disclaims any responsibility as to the accuracy of published postings and reserves the right to remove/revise any posting, at its sole discretion, without prior notification and without compensation to the advertiser.
