Political Action Network (PAN)

Advocating for change on behalf of Ontario's engineers

PAN_banner

OSPE’s Political Action Network (PAN) was launched in 2006 to provide members with an opportunity to advocate for their own profession. PAN volunteers help build a strong, consistent message by meeting with government officials to discuss a range of issues affecting engineers, such as: 

  • The need for greater government support for engineering research and innovation
  • Improving labour market conditions for engineers
  • Energy policy including nuclear energy
  • Transportation and infrastructure in their perspective regions


Goals

  • Develop long-term relationships with elected officials from each party, encouraging them to adopt OSPE policy solutions or become a champion on a particular issue that impacts engineers 
  • Ensure the profession has a local representative at town hall meetings, MPP/MP receptions, and stakeholder consultations throughout the province
  • Enhance relationships within the greater engineering community, including the profession's regulatory body, Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO), through collaboration with regional PEO Chapters
