LACF _ Goals and Objectives _ Supporting the Ideals of the Profession

The profession of landscape architecture strives to balance human use and enjoyment of land with conservation and health of the environment.  The Landscape Architecture Canada Foundation (LACF) supports this fundamental ideal, which includes (but is not limited to):

  • conserving and managing environmental resources;
  • accommodating the needs of humans in the environment; 
  • Promoting sustainable development;
  • enhancing and improving aesthetic quality in the landscape.

LACF supports research, communication and scholarship that contribute to meeting these goals.  To do so, LACF solicits, receives and manages gifts, grants and legacies; sets policies and establishes program priorities; and reviews, funds and communicates its activities and programs.

Over the past 25 years, LACF has supported a wide range of activities and projects including the development of habitat design guidelines, historic research and documentation, recording of oral histories, professional education programs, design research, publication of conference proceedings and communication projects.
