Administrative history

Canadian Architect is the official Journal of Record of Architecture Canada / RAIC. The magazine is a specialized monthly periodical for architects, planners and related professionals published in Don Mills, Ontario. The magazine features articles on current trends and issues affecting architectural practice in Canada, including the development of new building technologies and changing social needs. Canadian Architect also serves as the Journal of Record for the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada, publishing its newsletters and bulletins, and publicizing issues that concern both national and provincial architectural associations .In 1968, Canadian Architect established the Awards of Excellence for architectural design. The awards are juried by a panel of professionals and are awarded annually to architects registered in Canada in the December issue of the magazine. The competition entries are restricted to un-built projects, allowing the panel to focus their judgment on the plans, intentions and original ideas of the architect. Canadian Architect was first published in 1955 by MacLean-Hunter Limited under the editorial direction of James A. Murray as The Canadian Architect. In the early 1960s Southam Business Communications Inc. took over publication, and the magazine dropped the word “the” from its name in 1995.
