MAA’s New Address

The MAA wishes to remind its members that: our new mailing address (and future home) is:

Suite 101 - 177 Lombard Avenue, Winnipeg, MB, R3B 0W5

Staff is temporarily located on the 8th floor, in Suite 801, which is where any couriers or personal deliveries should be directed.


Important Deadlines

In accordance with the MAA By-Laws, members should take note of the following deadlines:

February 28, 2022

  • Initial deadline for payment of registered, intern and associate membership dues (without penalty).

May 31, 2022

  • Final deadline for payment of all membership dues (for all categories of members), practice fees and corporation assessments; and
  • Final deadline for application for renewal of all Certificates of Approval issued in prior years.

Please also take note of the following, as and where applicable:

  • The ‘gateway’ into the online credit card payments option can be found on the homepage of the MAA’s website and the system tracks online payments in real time; and
  • Since The Architects Act requires annual application to be made for a Certificate of Approval, the renewal form (though streamlined) must include the original manual signature of all registered members, as identified at the bottom of the form (no electronic signatures are permitted, nor can the renewal application be submitted by way of email).


Wanted: Expert architects to inform National Building Code development on future wall design

As innovation occurs in the field of wall design, research baselines supporting the Building Code and low carbon design require updating to reflect current practices. As part of a research project from the NRC, this is your chance to contribute your knowledge to inform research supporting future versions of the Building Code.

As masters of detailing, you are invited to apply to be one of the building experts in this study. You will provide base information on current practices as well as anonymized, typical detail drawings from your practice.

To participate you must have completed a minimum of 15 years as a practicing architect. Your contribution will take approximately 3-5 hours, and as your time is valuable to us, there will be a $500 honorarium for those selected.

Selection is based on range of practice, both in knowledge and location. Those selected will bring a variety of experiences to reflect building in Canada.

If interested, please fill out the linked form and prepare a short resume of your architectural experience. Both may be sent to upon completion.

Selection will close when the criteria are filled.[49].pdf
