Ontario Good(3 of 3 stars)

For the 2016-2018 period, the employment outlook is expected to be good for Architects (NOC 2151) in Ontario.

Employment of architects has experienced significant growth in Ontario over the last decade. The majority of these professionals are employed by architectural and engineering firms. A lot of the demand for these services comes from the non-residential construction sector. During the forecast period, job opportunities for architects are expected to benefit from favourable levels of new construction such as in transit facilities, hospitals and educational institutions. Further, some regions are experiencing above average population growth, which has resulted in several new residential developments, particularly mixed-use condominiums. Government funding committed for upgrades to heritage and cultural institutions also bodes well for architects to plan and develop designs for these structures.

Recent trends towards energy conservation and environmental sustainability have created the need for "green” designs. Architects with knowledge of sustainable design – Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED), and computerized design software, such as AutoCAD and Revit, will have improved job prospects. Architects are regulated by the Ontario Association of Architects (OAA). A fair amount of opportunities are available for self-employment in this occupation.
