Ottawa is the capital city of Canada, which means many important decisions are made right here, which affect the Canadian Industry. The Government is responsible for making laws: Acts / Regulations / REGDOCs / Codes & Standards. Additionally, the government supports the Industry through Programs / Initiatives, to stimulate the Economy. These laws are used by Engineers in the Industry everyday and these Initiatives could benefit Engineers in the Industry.

The Professional Engineers of Ontario (PEO) – Ottawa Chapter is launching a new Pilot Project event to develop the relationship between Government and Industry. The purpose of the Bridging the Gap Between Government and Industry initiative is to provide an opportunity for Government and Industry professionals to connect and learn about each other. The next event will focus on National Research Council – Codes Canada, which develops the National Building Code, National Fire Code, National Plumbing Code, and National Energy Code for Buildings.
