The interview is conducted by the same panel of three architects that assessed the competency demonstration submission. The applicant is required to bring documentation from no fewer than two projects (in a hardcopy format) to the interview session. These do not have to be Canadian projects. The panel may request that the applicant bring particular documents.

The interview is similar to an oral exam. It is a respectful discussion among colleagues and is intended to provide the assessors an opportunity to further review the submission, obtain all necessary clarifications regarding applicant’s experiences and knowledge, and better understand the extent of your familiarity with areas of practice and/or regulation of the practice of the profession in Canada.
