of Landscape Architects
(CSLA) announced July 7,
2014, that David Johnston,
governor general of Canada,
has agreed to establish the
Governor General's Medal
in Landscape Architecture
(GGMLA) to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the CSLA.
GGMLA will be the highest honor bestowed by the CSLA, and awarded every two
years. The medal is meant for exceptional landscape architects whose lifetime achievements
and contributions to the profession have had a unique and lasting impact on Canadian
society. The only other requirement is the landscape architect must be a member of CSLA.
Current CSLA board members are ineligible, and a landscape architect may only receive
the GGMLA once in his or her lifetime.
Nomination deadline will be announced this fall. For more information, or to
