Canadian Landscape Standard – Request for Reviewers

01/30/2019

The Canadian Nursery
and Landscape Association (CNLA) and Canadian Society
of Landscape Architects (CSLA) are preparing for the launch of
the Canadian Landscape Standard (CLS)
Version 2.0
 in the fall of 2019. The CLS Steering
Committee is seeking volunteers from each region of Canada to assist
in the review of the CLS First Edition so that revisions and new information
can be included within the CLS 2.0. O
 
CLS 2019  Review
Format 

To reduce the workload
of reviewing every section the CLS Steering committee has developed a list of
sections that require a full review. Currently the sections that have been
identified for full review are as follows:

Section

The purpose of a full review is to review each section and identify where edits
are required, content needs updating or new content can be added. In addition
to content review we are also asking reviewers to please identify any
opportunities to insert illustrations within the CLS.

We are reaching out to regional reviewers from the CLS First Edition as well as
new participants that are interested in being a part of the review. We are also
searching for subject matter experts that may specialized in a particular
section that could help with review and developing new content. 

With regards to schedule the goal is to have the review completed by end of
February. Final Draft completed by end of April and then translation and
production to occur over the summer with a soft launch anticipated for
Mid-August 2019.

If you are interested, please let Laura Willman know, and she will pass your
contact information along.
