Your Opportunity

The Buildings North Group of Stantec Architects Ltd. is renowned for creating innovative, high-performance, fiscally responsible and award-winning buildings and interiors.  We're passionate about the design quality of the built environment and create designs that are timeless, intelligent, and sustainable.

Your Duties

We are looking for an Architect to join our growing practice in Iqaluit.  

But we are not looking for just any Architect. 

In this Arctic locale, you will experience special facets of architectural practice that are available to very few of us in North America.  These experiences represent unparalleled opportunities to meaningfully develop your career at an accelerated pace.  In short, northern experience is hard won and consequently, very valuable.


We want someone who wants to grow their career remarkably.

Canada’s North abounds with unique and significant challenges - extreme climate, very fine environmental and cultural sensitivities and the significant logistics of delivering projects to smaller communities spread over a vast geographic area with limited transportation access.  These factors demand the highest levels of commitment and even ownership - of the design theses and of the design solutions. 



We need someone who sees the value of such a challenge.

In return for this exciting opportunity, you will be challenged personally.  You will need to open your mind to possibilities, use ‘good sense’ to understand the often unique design problems and then to create effective and implementable solutions to unusual design problems.  We will challenge you to use your initiative but to team with us to arrive at the best designs.



We are looking for someone who can help Team colleagues but who, in turn, also knows when and how to ask for help.

If you have these qualities, we will then discuss living in the remote North.  Many have moved here and successfully make it their home.  Again, it will be a test of how open you are - to new experiences, to a different style of community – to commit to a new community and neighbours because, in the North, we depend on each other to a different and greater extent than anywhere else on Earth.


Someone who can embrace such a new way of living.

We feel we are truly different if not unique.  How unique can you be?

Your Capabilities and Credentials

Candidates should have the following qualifications:


  • 10 or more years of professional experience in an Architectural practice,
  • Experience of challenging design environments will be an asset
  • Confident direct inter-personal communications skills
  • Well organized with a track record of successfully managing project schedules
  • A minimum of 3 years demonstrated experience of project management
  • Design skills focused on creatively addressing a Client’s real project demands.
  • AutoCAD proficiency, Revit training/experience and 3D design software
  • Interest/knowledge in "green" technology will be an asset
  • Ability to work in a team environment


Our multidisciplinary team is widely regarded as a leader in competence based consulting and it ranges over many interesting disciplines.  Here, you will have the opportunity to team with the brightest and best to deliver excellence in your projects and to experience working with experts in unusual fields of the design pantheon.  You will also quickly develop a rewarding and supportive group of colleagues and clients.


This is a place where great ideas and rewarding careers come home.
