Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board’s 30 by 30 Working Group Report

We are seeking stakeholder feedback on the 19 recommendations of the CEAB 30 by 30 Working Group report. The objectives of the consultation are to:

  1. Inform stakeholders of the CEAB’s efforts to contribute to Engineers Canada’s 30 by 30 initiative. 
  2. Investigate stakeholder reaction to the report recommendations.
  3. Identify recommendations that should be implemented and those that should not move forward for implementation, and make improvements to suggested changes/metrics before implementations.
  4. Identify barriers to change to any of the report recommendations.
  5. Develop a reasonable implementation plan that reflects the diverse viewpoints of stakeholders.
  6. Collect feedback on the overlap between 30 by 30 initiatives and wider equity, diversity and inclusion efforts.

We will be consulting with stakeholders between May 2 and August 31, 2022.
