Welcome

Welcome Engineers!

It is again my honour to be the Chair of the Ottawa Chapter of the Professional Engineers of Ontario in 2018 – the 96th year of the existence of the Professional Engineers Ontario – a self governing profession that licenses provincial Engineers and regulates professional engineering in Ontario to serve and protect the public.

The Ottawa Chapter is the largest Chapter with over 8,500 members and covers the Ottawa Valley. It is managed by an Executive Committee consisting of five Officers and up to nine Directors, under the authority of the Professional Engineers Act as governed by the Chapter Mandate:

  • To facilitate participation and training of license holders in the governance, succession planning for PEO leadership, and statutory duties of the profession;
  • To work to identify the value of the profession to future license holders;
  • To promote and enhance understanding within society of the self-regulated engineering profession and the importance of licensure;
  • To actively participate in PEO’s policy development.

Assisting your Chapter’s executive are a group of dedicated volunteers who work to plan develop and deliver a comprehensive program of events which enable our members and the next generation of engineers to develop their individual skills & knowledge.

Following a disrupted 2020 year due to COVID-19, the coming year will look different in the delivery of our program. You’ll see virtual events presented monthly so keep an eye out on our web site and emailed event notices and hopefully we will see a return to traditional in-person events this year. I encourage you to reach out to us to join our group of volunteers by contacting me or any of the executives listed on our
website.
