Reflecting Back and Looking Forward: Engineering Culture and the Future of the Profession - March 1, 2023
The culture of engineering is a complex interplay among the people in engineering, the institutions that train them, and the societies they serve. Join Engineers Canada on March 1, 2023, as they kick off National Engineering Month with a panel discussion about the culture of engineering. The panelists will discuss the culture shift that is taking place within the profession: from the calls for changes to the Iron Ring Ceremony, efforts to diversify and attract more women to the profession, to issues related to environmental justice and reconciliation. For more information about the event and to register, please see the event listing.

Introduction to Climate Change Through Codes, Standards, and Regulations - March 2 or 3, 2023
Codes, standards, and regulations are changing in response to and in anticipation of climate change. Organizations across the world are updating existing standards or writing new ones to help engineers, construction workers, healthcare workers, and many others to prepare society for extreme weather and changing climate conditions. The intention and purpose of this course is to have all participants understand the role that is played by Codes, Standards, and Regulations regarding climate change adaptation and mitigation for infrastructure, water and wastewater, and building construction.
