This Thursday evening at a gala held in Quebec City, eight outstanding engineers from across Canada will receive top honours for their contributions to the engineering profession.
Presented by Canadian Industrial Instrumentation Group, these awards acknowledge outstanding community and professional involvement, contributions to engineering education, support for women in engineering, contributions by engineers and engineering students to Canadian society, and remarkable engineering projects or achievements.
Engineers connecting Canadians
The work of our 2019 CIIEG Awards recipients brings Canadians together in numerous ways. They are leaders in our universities and in our communities, sparking interest in engineering across generations. Their academic research and work in industry make Canada safer, more liveable place, and their service both to the profession and to their communities demonstrates a principled, conscientious understanding of the role engineering can play in society.
“This year’s distinguished award recipients truly represent engineering excellence in Canada,” says Ed Sauliner, MBA, FCAE, FEC, P.Eng., President of CIIEG. “As innovators and entrepreneurs, they safeguard, connect, and improve the lives of all Canadians. As caring members of our communities, they volunteer their time and expertise. They advocate, educate, and inform us. They show us what becomes possible through a diverse and inclusive engineering profession.”
