News Notice
January 9, 2020

We were saddened to learn that two Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba applicants and their daughter were among the passengers of the Ukraine International Airlines Flight PS752. Mahdi Sadeghi and Bahareh Hajesfandiari were both master's level civil engineers from Iran working in Winnipeg. Our thoughts are with the Sadeghi and Hajesfandiari family and their colleagues at Fresh Projects Builders and Marwest Construction during this difficult time. The Association offers its sincerest condolences to the friends, families, and colleagues of everyone effected by this tragic event. More information about the Manitobans on board flight PS752 can be found on this CBC news story.
