The seven new members are:

Bernard St-Denis, AAPQ, CSLA
He worked for the City of Montreal for 10 years as a landscape architect and section head, and was head of his own firm for four years.

He has served as president of the Newfoundland and Labrador Association of Landscape Architects and on the CSLA board of directors.

Induction to the College of Fellows is the highest honour the CSLA bestows on its members. A jury of six Fellows, representing regions across Canada, selected the new Fellows based on extensive submissions documenting each candidate’s contributions to the profession.

Since the inception of the CSLA’s College of Fellows in 1964, 253 members have been given the prestigious designation “FCSLA”.
