Engineers build a better world through creativity, curiosity, and an open mind. These exceptional individuals have not only demonstrated excellence in their fields, but are actively transforming the culture of engineering. From leading institutional change and championing equity-deserving groups, to grassroots community involvement and student mental health, these engineers are redefining what it means to be an engineer in the 21st century.
Nominated by their peers and colleagues, the Engineers Canada Awards recognize the exceptional work and achievements of trailblazers in engineering. Our 2023 Engineers Canada recipients are promoting sustainability, championing equity, diversity, and inclusion in engineering, and leading impactful projects and research. Through engineering education, academic research, community involvement, and the advancement of women in engineering, these recipients are igniting change for a better world. The six 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.
