Below are some frequently asked questions about the OAA Council Elections, and technical inquiries on ballots/voting. For further questions please contact the Office of the Registrar.
The OAA exists to protect the public interest and govern the members and practice of architecture in Ontario. The OAA has a governing Council.
The Council sets policy direction for the OAA and is currently composed of 15 architects, 1 Licensed Technologist OAA and 1 Intern Architect (Non-Voting Seat) who are elected, as well as 5 members of the public appointed by the Lieutenant Governor in Council (LGIC).
By participating on council, you strengthen the profession’s capacity to self-regulate, and act in the public interest to ensure members maintain the standards of competency and conduct within the profession.
Architects and Licensed Technologist OAA may cast one vote for the Licensed Technologist OAA candidate to be elected to council.
Architects and Intern Architects may cast one vote for the Intern Architect Non-Voting Seat candidate to be elected to council.
