Ontario Fair(2 of 3 stars)

For the 2016-2018 period, the employment outlook is expected to be fair for Landscape architects (NOC 2152) in Ontario.

In Ontario, the majority of landscape architects are employed by architectural, engineering and related services and local and municipal governments. Employment demand for landscape architects in these sectors is strongly linked to trends in construction. Investment in construction is expected to grow over the next few years with a significant number of large-scale residential and non-residential projects planned. Further, above average population increases in some areas of the province are resulting in funding allocations to strengthen the local infrastructure. For example, funds are committed to build more schools, child care facilities and upgrade recreational facilities such as parks, creating the need for landscape architectural services.

Companies providing landscape services to buildings and dwellings also employ a significant share of these professionals. The growing interest in creating green spaces and improving the curbside appeal of commercial and residential properties should continue to support favourable demand for the services of landscape architects.

Landscape architect is not a regulated profession in Ontario and any qualified professional can perform the related job functions of this occupation. However, only members of the Ontario Association of Landscape Architects (OALA) can practice under the "landscape architect” designation. Employment prospects will be more favourable for individuals who are members of the OALA and with experience using drawing software such as AutoCad and Sketchup and desk top publishing software including, Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign.

Entry into this occupation is somewhat restricted as while landscape architects are required to have at least an undergraduate degree in landscape architecture, only a limited number of educational institutions in Ontario offer this training. This occupation does experience some seasonality and employment prospects are better during the summer months. However, unemployment is generally low in this occupation. There are also a fair amount of opportunities for self-employment.

About 60% of Ontario's landscape architects are located in the Toronto economic region. Demand is expected to be stronger in this region based on the significant level of new construction activity and high number of residential and commercial facilities requiring landscape architecture services.
