To mark the centennial celebrations of their respective engineering regulators, two Canadian cities have recently declared special days to honour their engineers. On June 29, 2020, the City of Edmonton recognized APEGA’s accomplished history and the amazing achievements of its members by naming the day APEGA Day. Not to be upstaged, Mayor Mike Savage of Halifax issued a proclamation that October 14, 2020 would be known as Engineers Nova Scotia Day.
APEGA’s press release notes that “Since 1920, APEGA has laid the framework for a safe and resilient future with ingenuity, perseverance, and drive. With these resources, the association’s members represent some of the most innovative decision makers and thought leaders in the world of science.”
The press release for Engineers Nova Scotia Day contains similar sentiments, noting that “the Association’s 7200 members represent some of the most innovative decision makers and thought leaders in the engineering community in Nova Scotia who help shape the future of all Nova Scotians.”
Our warmest congratulations go out to the engineers in these cities, and to all engineers across Canada whose regulators are celebrating their centennials this year. We hope to see many more such stories in the future!
