Become CNU Accredited

CNUa High Res

Industry professionals in Ontario are highly encouraged to become accredited by the Congress for the New Urbanism. CNU’s professional accreditation program is the premier standard of professional excellence in the design of the built environment.

CNU has partnered with the University of Miami School of Architecture to launch the first phase of this program using an online exam developed by leading new urbanist experts. Professionals can take the exam online during three access windows that will be scheduled each year.

Professionals who meet the requirements of accreditation will be recognized as CNU-Accredited or CNU-A. The accreditation credential can be used for business identification, reference criteria, and optional credits within the LEED for Neighborhood Development rating system.

Benefits of Accreditation:

  • Use of the CNU-A designation
  • Provides a marketable credential to employers and clients
  • Listing on CNU Member Directory as CNU-Accredited
  • CNU-Accredited Professional Certificate
  • Optional Innovation Credit in LEED for Neighborhood Development (LEED-ND)
