Engineers Canada Board Meeting – February 22-24 in Ottawa, Ontario
There were a lot of topics discussed and here is the list of the main topics relevant to CFES.
- NSERC will have public consultations about their Strategic Plan this summer. CFES will have a copy of that report and will have the opportunity to comment on it. The report will be made available to our members as soon as we receive it.
- The CFES will look at the Underemployment report produced by the Ontario Society of Professional Engineers and the International Engineering Graduate program by Engineers Canada and the Canadian government and update our members.
- There are still a lot of discussions about the Accreditation Process and the Graduate Attributes. The NCDEAS and Engineers Canada through the Accreditation Board will continue to work on it and improve our already “gold standard” accreditation process.
Also, many items were discussed between CFES and Engineers Canada staff like the Parliement Hill event on March 24th in Ottawa, the survey on exit students, and some ideas to improve our translation strategy.
Over all it was again a very productive conference. The next Engineers Canada meeting is their AGM in Calgary next May.
