SASKATOON, May 24, 2018 /CNW/ - Later tonight eight outstanding engineers from across Canada will receive top honours for their contributions to the engineering profession at a gala reception presented by Engineers Canada.
The 2018 Engineers Canada Awards recipients have each impacted the daily lives of Canadians, whether it's through the development of the nutrient-enriched foods that we eat, the water we drink, the pedestrian crosswalks we use, the regulation that ensures the sustainability of Canada's environment, or the building of a new link to Canada's far north. As caring members of our communities, award recipients volunteer their time and resources to address such social issues as addiction and diversity whilst utilizing their professional problem-solving skills to better people's lives from coast to coast to coast.
This year's award recipients illustrate stories of engineering achievement, excellence, and passion for the profession. They show Canadians the dynamic and diverse nature of the engineering profession and the impact this work has on the lives of Canadians and those from around the globe.
