The Northwestern Ontario Society of Architects (NWOSA) is a not-for-profit organization and a local chapter of the Ontario Association of Architects. We are comprised of members who are architects, students of architecture, and affiliates - including artists, engineers and architecture aficionados. Together, we act as a collective voice for great local architecture.
NWOSA plays an important communication and advocacy role, ensuring that architecture is given appropriate consideration in community planning across the region. Our work involves education and outreach to government, industrial, commercial and residential stakeholders.
Our members also act as champions for the architecture profession. Architects in Northwestern Ontario are highly trained and regulated professionals with the expertise to create beautiful, safe and accessible spaces. Through collaboration, professional development and peer recognition, we ensure that the highest standards of architectural talent continue to be available in the region.
