Professional Engineers Ontario has unveiled a new "roadmap" for the next three years.

Professional Engineers Ontario has unveiled a new “roadmap” for the next three years.

In a December 3 press release, the licensing body’s registrar, Gerard McDonald, P.Eng., said, “PEO is facing many challenges as we approach 100 years of regulating the engineering profession in Ontario. Our strategic plan is a roadmap for how we will meet these challenges and implement the required changes.”

The first strategic objective listed was: “that recommendations from the Elliot Lake Commission of Inquiry are earnestly implemented.”

Other objectives include:

– that members regard PEO as their trusted advisor and advocate in matters of professional practice;

– that regulations, standards and guidelines are produced through an evidence-based, integrated and streamlined policy-making process;

– to optimize the complaints process, balancing transparency, fairness and timeliness;

– to ensure that the practice and title-provisions of the Professional Engineers Act are judiciously enforced and continuously improved;

– to engage key regulatory ministries and industry in engineering public policy development;

– to increase public respect for the role of PEO;

– that PEO’s governance approach is robust, transparent and trusted;

– that PEO chapters are engaged in the regulatory mandate of the association;

– that equity and diversity values and principles are integrated into the general policy and business operations; and

– that PEO is recognized as an employer of choice.

The plan was produced by PEO staff and volunteers over nine months, and involved extensive research and stakeholder consultation.
