ICE has three Committees across Canada - the Canadian Prairies Group of Chartered Engineers, Chartered Engineers of Pacific Western Canada and Canada Ontario Local Committee.

Regional committees and branches

Committee members are volunteers and come from a range of backgrounds within the civil engineering profession.

Find out more about the committees and groups, including who's involved and how you can get in touch.

At the heart of everything we do in Ontario is our local committee. ICE Members of all levels in Ontario have a common interest to learn, develop and interact with other Engineers from the ICE as well as those within the wider engineering profession across Canada.

We are fortunate to have the ICE Americas Chair and the UK ICE Ontario Representative based in Ontario, which provides additional opportunities for Ontario, the whole of Canada and the Americas. The Committee has recently undertaken a Strategy and Planning exercise to set out a 3-year plan that focusses on the key elements laid out below to expand our visibility and grow the local membership and outreach.

Throughout this process the local committee has gathered traction and momentum to sustainably achieve our goals and the objectives that have been set. This will embrace local engineers and affiliated Institutions and Associations operating in the Ontario Community.

The presence of ICE in Ontario dates back to the 1960s when Ontario Hydro embarked on a major expansion attracting engineering experience from around the world, many of them members of ICE.

Ontario’s rapid population growth in the years since, and the need for major infrastructure resulted in a further increase of number of engineering professionals who were members of ICE.

ICE Ontario support members and the broader engineering community in Ontario through various initiatives:

  • Technical lectures
  • Networking events
  • Student chapters in Ontario universities
  • An annual gala dinner and discussion panel
  • Student competitions
  • Networking of civil engineers with international experience
  • Collaboration with other engineering organizations in the region
  • The exchange of engineering knowledge
  • Awareness of the technical resources available through ICE

The Canadian Prairies Group of Chartered Engineers (CPGCE) is a multi-disciplinary group of members of British Engineering Institutions who live and/or work in Alberta, Saskatchewan or the Northwest Territories. CPGCE has been actively arranging technical events for many years bringing together industry experts to get an update on projects, challenges, and opportunities. These events provide an excellent networking opportunity for professionals in a relaxed setting.
