Welcome to Canada

The Institution is supported in Canada by two Branches and two Joint Groups.  

Branches solely support the Institution’s membership in a specific location whilst Joint Groups are multi –disciplinary functions representing members from two or more engineering organisations.

The Canadian Prairies Group represents members from the Institutions of mechanical, civil, structural, engineering technology and building services engineers.  The group was established in 1994 and operates in the provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan, the North West Territories and Nanavut.        

The Central Canada Branch was established in 1971 and represents members in Ontario and Manitoba.

Eastern Canada Branch established in 1971 and operates in Quebec, New Brunswick, New Foundland, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Labrador and St Pierre & Miquelon.

  • Event Type: Technical Lecture
    25 November 2015 18:30 to 20:30
    Danish Canadian Club - Calgary
    Dr. Rosalind Williams described it best when she wrote “the mission of engineering has changed because the dominant problem no longer involves the conquest of nature, but the creation and management of a self-made habitat” This talk will discuss an approach to engineering education that will challenge the way we do engineering today: biomimicry or bio-inspired design. This field allows Williams’ vision of the co-creation and management of a self-made habitat – one that can co-exist in the world
