Ontario Society of Professional Engineers

The voice of the engineering profession in Ontario

The Ontario Society of Professional Engineers (OSPE) is the voice of the engineering profession in Ontario. We represent the entire engineering community, including professional engineers, engineering graduates and students who work or will work in several of the most strategic sectors of Ontario’s economy.

OSPE elevates the profile of the profession by advocating with governments, offering valued member services and providing opportunities for ongoing learning, networking and community building.

OSPE was formed in 2000 after members of Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO) voted to separate regulatory and advocacy functions into two distinct organizations.


Mission, Vision and Values

Vision

Our vision is to be the voice of Ontario’s engineers that champions the interests of the province’s engineering community.


Values

We represent the entire engineering community in Ontario, including professional engineers licensed in Ontario, engineering graduates, interns and students.

2015 - 2019 Strategic Plan

OSPE is the only engineering association in the province that is mandated to serve the needs of the entire engineering community, including professional engineers and all engineering graduates, interns and students. We are passionate about elevating the public profile of the engineering profession and providing the support that our members need to not only succeed, but excel in their careers.

 

Engage, Amplify, Excel

Engage, Amplify, Excel is our boldest strategic plan yet. We've set an ambitious target to increase paid membership by 25% over five years, and we will do this by focusing on these four strategic drivers:
  • Create Member Value
  • Focus on Public Policy
  • Raise Public Awareness
  • Build Community Engagement

With this plan, we will:

  • Become the association of choice for engineers and engineering professionals in Ontario
  • Get more engineers talking to amplify the voice of the profession in government policy, planning discussions, and in the media
  • Aggressively promote employment of engineers in the province and provide appropriate support at every stage of their careers
  • Prepare members for new demands and expectations with relevant and competitive professional development offerings, by partnering with learned engineering societies
