Canadian Consulting Engineer


Canadian Consulting Engineer is a magazine for professional engineers working as consultants in the construction field. Published since 1959, it is the only national engineering magazine in Canada that covers all engineering disciplines and all geographic regions.

The feature articles focus on innovative and high profile engineering projects, ranging from civil works in transportation (highways, airports, bridges, etc.), to water treatment plants and sewage works, to hydroelectric dams and power generation. On a smaller scale, we look at building construction, including structures, mechanical and electrical systems, energy management and building controls. We also periodically feature site planning and environmental remediation, industrial processes and controls — in short, we cover the myriad world of engineering in Canada.

Business articles and departments investigate techniques for improving management practices, construction law and financial issues. We also run features investigating problems and controversies of the day as they affecting engineering companies and individual engineers. The most popular issue every year is in the fall when we have the Canadian Consulting Engineering Awards, a prestigious annual program held by the magazine in association with the Association of Consulting Engineering Companies – Canada (ACEC-Canada).
