The official launch of the P.E.I. chapter of Building Equality in Architecture Atlantic (BEA Atlantic) will be held later this month in partnership with the national movement Building Equality in Architecture (BEA), a not-for-profit organization promoting excellence, diversity and equity for the profession of architecture.

This launch celebrates the beginning of BEA Atlantic in P.E.I. 

The event will allow interested members to register, to learn more about upcoming BEA events and offer a great networking opportunity.

BEA Atlantic was publicly launched in Saint John at the 2018 Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC) Festival of Architecture and then in Nova Scotia in 2019. 

With the aim to connect the Atlantic provinces through public outreach events, lectures and workshops, initiatives that will develop strategies and practices of equality in architecture across the four provinces.
