Black History Month

“Architects have that control from afar to design and shape your space – and we all experience space, whether it’s your home or your workplace… It is a valid profession to introduce to the next generation, especially minority children… because at the end of the day why not be involved in something that we experience daily?”

– Camille Mitchell, 2017
Toronto-based architect, Formerly the Managing Director for Building Equality in Architecture Toronto (BEAT).

In recognition of Black History Month, we at MTA continue to celebrate the many achievements of the Black community – particularly in the field of architecture and design. The influence and impact of Black professionals on the AEC industry in Canada is profound and far-reaching.

As our industry builds momentum toward greater diversity, equity, and inclusion, our firm endeavours to help foster positive change. Here are a few organizations that promote and empower a diversity of voices:
