“Provide your “Academic Certification” documentation from the Canadian Architectural Certification Board (CACB).
Documentation from the Canadian Architectural Certification Board (CACB) showing your acceptance into the Broadly Experienced Foreign Architect (BEFA) program including an invitation to apply to the self-assessment phase (2nd step).”
Therefore, I believe, you could get an academic certification document from CACB or get the other one. This is why, I am applying for the Academic Certification, as I believe the requirements are a bit less than the second one.
On the other hand, I found the forms, and online forms both a bit difficult to fill, but I still need to get this to be done, therefore, doing it in anyways.
According to CACB, the Academic Certification takes around 3 months after they get all the required documents.
