Protecting the Public

The Nova Scotia Association of Architects (NSAA) is the regulator of the profession of architecture in Nova Scotia that is legislated to protect the public and act in the public interest.

It does this by:

  • informing the public about architects including: what is an architect; when an architect is required; and how to find, select and hire an architect, and
  • regulating the profession through the maintenance of professional competence and ethical conduct of its members including handling complaints against members of the NSAA and posting disciplinary findings against its members.
