Climate change is real and it endangers the safety and welfare of the public. Polices must ensure that Ontario’s environment and economic wellbeing is protected for future generations, by both mitigating and adapting to climate change. Concrete actions must be taken to address greenhouse gas emissions in a cost effective and sustainable manner.
Research and Innovation
Ontario’s engineers are uniquely positioned to contribute exponentially to Canada’s R&I ecosystem. Investments will create a more innovative and dynamic business environment and modernize the Canadian economy.
Women in Engineering
Only 23% of women with engineering degrees worked in the engineering profession in 2015. Women make up 48% of Canada’s overall workforce, but out of 160,000 engineers in the country, only 13% are women. Traditionally male-dominated STEAM industries continue to face difficulties attracting and retaining women.

Inclusion (EDI) and
- The engineering profession must become more equitable, diverse and inclusive in order to thrive
- EDI in engineering will result in innovation, growth and competitiveness
- Engineers can have a larger impact by embracing all aspects of diversity dimensions, including gender, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, ability, geographic location and engineering discipline
Join us on November 6, 2019 for The EDI Imperative: Changing the Profile of STEAM in Canada in Ottawa, Ontario.
