Engineers are behind some of the world’s most innovative developments, from the cars we drive, the bridges that connect us, the mobile devices we use, and beyond. In an ever-changing world, engineers are driving new discoveries and powering safer, faster, more comfortable, and environmentally friendly communities to make Canada a better place.
The Engineers Canada Awards recognize the exceptional work and achievements of trailblazers in engineering, celebrating excellence in engineering. Our 2021 Engineers Canada recipients are shaping the world through engineering education, academic research, community involvement, the advancement of women in engineering, and tackling our society’s most pressing challenges. This year’s recipients exemplify the outstanding contributions engineers are making at all stages of their careers that have a lasting impact on our society.

Award for the Support of Women in the Engineering Profession.
Presented annually since 1972 to recognize outstanding Canadian engineers, teams of engineers, engineering projects and achievements, and engineering students, the Engineers Canada Awards highlight professional excellence, as well as the contributions of engineers to their community, and to the safety and well-being of Canadians.
The process to review and determine the award recipients is rigorous. Engineers Canada forwards the call for award nominations to the provincial and territorial engineering associations, Canadian post-secondary institutions, and the engineering community every fall. Nominees are brought forward and careful consideration is given to leadership in the profession and the community, outstanding achievements, and to previous recognition obtained. The nominees are reviewed by the Engineers Canada Awards Committee who, in turn, determine the award recipients.
Engineers Canada celebrates the 2021 award recipients.
