RAIC Centre for Architecture
Athabasca University and the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC) proudly present Canada's first online Architectural programs! To this end, these two organizations have formed the RAIC Centre for Architecture at Athabasca University, which provides a new way to study architecture.
