About the Project
The CLP is a web-based digital photographic gallery intended to illustrate Canada’s diversity of landscapes by provinces and territories. Compiled from CSLA members’ submissions from around the country, the CLP aspires to showcase the various “landscapes” mentioned in the Canadian Landscape Charter, including the ones too often forgotten because of their apparent unimportance. The CLP is not about finding the most picturesque, rare or exhilarating place but more about capturing those significant moments when a close relationship is achieved between the author and a specific landscape.

CSLA Awards of Excellence and Legacy Project Award

The Board of the CSLA launched a modernized Awards of Excellence Program, including a Legacy Project Award.

The deadline for submissions to the Awards of Excellence program is January 22nd.

For the Legacy Project Award, the APALA Board encourages its members to submit nominations to by January 4, 2016. The APALA Board will review nominations and circulate a list for a vote by members; the submission with the most votes will be sent as the Atlantic Canada submission by the award deadline.

CSLA endorses the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals

The CSLA Board unanimously adopted a motion to endorse the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

In 2000, the UN established Millennium Development Goals, which include eight anti-poverty targets to be accomplished by 2015. Since then, enormous progress has been made towards achieving the MDGs.

The United Nations has now defined Sustainable Development Goals designed to finish the work of the Millennium Development Goals. Sustainable Development Goals were launched in September 2015, and include 17 goals which address the interconnected elements of sustainable development: economic growth, social inclusion, and environmental protection in all countries by 2030. The 17 goals include water and sanitation, energy, economic growth, infrastructure, cities, climate change, oceans, biodiversity, forests, peace and justice.
