The CFES took part in the Association of Consulting Engineering Companies of Canada National Leadership Conference 2017 in Ottawa from October 22-24.
ACEC represents the Canadian consulting engineering industry and they have been a long time supporter and partner of the CFES. Their annual conference brings together leaders and emerging leaders from across the country and includes two important events in addition to the business program: the Parliament Hill Day and the Canadian Consulting Engineering Awards Gala.
On Hill Day, our President had the opportunity to meet our Prime Minister alongside engineering professionals to discuss what consulting engineering really is and then met with MP Anju Dhillon of Montreal to discuss diversity in our field and some issues the consulting engineering industry is facing.
Later that evening, Zenon was joined by the Presidents of the Carleton Student Engineering Society and the University of Ottawa Engineering Student Society, Sasha and Isaac, for the CCE Awards Gala that honoured excellence outstanding achievements in the industry through 25 awards presented to firms and individuals. We’d like congratulate John Gamble, the President/CEO of ACEC, and his team for another great conference and we hope to attend again next year!
