LACF supports communication initiatives that advance the understanding of the fundamental values of the profession of landscape architecture. From helping to establish the award-winning CSLA magazine, Landscapes | Paysages to seed-funding Canadian publications and events about "landscape", LACF aims to spread the word by communicating widely.
Our scholarship program is growing rapidly. With a total of 17 Scholarships currently housed under the LACF banner, the Foundation is aiming to increase awards from $15,000 to $25,000 annually for national and regional scholarships combined. Your generous support is essential to reaching this target. Investing in our next generation of leaders promises a better future for all.
