Strategic planning

Engineers Canada continues the process in developing the organization’s 2022-2024 strategic plan.

Starting in October 2020, regulators will have the opportunity to consult on the draft 2022-2024 strategic plan. This follows information sessions held with regulator presidents and CEOs,  CEAB and CEQB representatives where they had the opportunity to preview the draft strategic plan in October 2020.

Consultation feedback will then be consolidated and reviewed by the Board’s Strategic Plan Task Force and a final strategic plan will be submitted for Board approval in February 2021 and for regulator approval at their Annual Meeting of Members in May 2021.

The draft strategic priorities were determined at the August 2020 strategic retreat of the Engineers Canada Board. The purpose of this workshop was to confirm the vision statement for Engineers Canada and select strategic priorities for the draft strategic plan. The strategic priorities for consideration had been developed based on input received at the February 2020 foresight workshop. 

The input at the foresight workshop was drawn from the first stages of the strategic planning process, which included an environmental scan of the trends impacting the engineering profession, as well as an analysis of Engineers Canada’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT). These were supplemented in summer 2020 with an analysis of potential impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

As the strategic planning process continues, more information will be posted on this page.

Strategic planning process - status at Sept 2020
