The Ottawa Chapter coordinates a variety of activities throughout each calendar year. Activities range from the local Chapter AGM, which is traditionally held in the first quarter of the year, to seminars on a wide range of topics. Tours are also held at various times throughout the year. The Ottawa Chapter regularly plans New Members' Nights, which are designed to welcome new Licencees to the profession. These events often include a speaker or a tour of an interesting Ottawa area site - the Diefenbunker for example!
For those with an interest in sports -- there is the HOPE Beach Volleyball team, the Annual Golf Tournament held in the summer, the Curling Bonspiel and a family night at the Kanata Wave Pool, which are usually held in the first quarter of the year. For the avid paddler.
For more information on upcoming events, please check the most recent calendar of events. We welcome suggestions from you on activities, seminars or tours of interest: please contact our Chapter Chair, via e-mail.

Selected Upcoming Events: PEO Ottawa Chapter
Licensure Assistance Program
The PEO Chapter is launching a Licensure Assistance Program in your area. This program is designed to link licensed Professional Engineers (Guides) with Engineering Interns to provide guidance and support to the intern as he/she progresses towards professional licensure status.
Volunteers are the lifeblood of PEO and participating through the association can be a very rewarding experience that provides on-going professional skills development.
This Licensure Assistance Program is expected to run from 3rd June to 3rd December. You would be expected to meet with your guide/intern for at least 2 hours a month over that time period and to provide feedback to the Chapter.
Your valuable experience is needed to help guide a young intern to licensure. Volunteer to be a part of this great, new initiative!
