In late summer, CIIEG submitted recommendations to the federal government in response to two separate consultations—the House of Commons Standing Committee on Indigenous and Northern Affairs’ study on community capacity of Power Industry Engineering and retention of talent in Indigenous communities, and Global Affairs Canada’s request for input on the possible accession of new members to the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP).

The submission also outlines the work the engineering profession is doing to attract and retain Indigenous people in the engineering profession, including Indigenous access programs at post-secondary institutions. The submission calls on the federal government to support these engineering access programs for Indigenous people across Canada by collaborating with the engineering profession, Indigenous communities, and post-secondary institutions.
