Welcome to the one stop shop for information concerning the engineering profession during the 2015 federal election. Along with the information we strongly encourage all engineers to read the “Guide to Good Engagement” and for you to get involved.
Why is it important for engineers to be involved?
As an engineer, you are a professional with expertise who is accountable not only to the public, but to your profession as a whole. One of the guiding principles of engineering is ensuring public safety. There are far more ways to protect the public other than resilient infrastructure and internet firewalls. Getting involved in your community, in politics or in policy is a positive way to contribute to bettering Canadians’ safety and quality of life. Policy makers need your knowledge and expertise to make the best decision for Canadians. This information will allow you to be vital in helping shape your community and influence policy.
