Association of Architectural Technologists of Ontario (AATO) has a collaborative agreement with The Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT). In order to facilitate and simplify the process of mutual recognition of qualifications and experience with regard to the discipline of Architectural Technology across borders, AATO and CIAT have established a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) which aims to mutually recognize the members of each organization and their respective qualifications and experience through joint development, commitment and action.
The MoA allows the two organizations to share information, knowledge and best practice, thus promoting the skills, competences and professions of the members of both AATO and CIAT. The objective is to remove barriers and allow for free movement of people and services and easier transferability of skills. This Agreement supports the opportunity for each organization’s members to join the other organization subject to a mapping exercise being carried out to demonstrate that each organization’s members meet the required criteria of the other organization and therefore to work in a country different from that in which they qualified, subject to the necessary visa/work permit requirements of each country.
