PEO releases three-year roadmap to advance its self-regulatory role and the practice of engineering

Toronto – (December 11, 2017) – Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO), Ontario’s engineering regulator, unveiled a blueprint to guide the association through the adoption of a comprehensive and ambitious three-year strategic plan. The 2018-2020 Strategic Plan was approved by PEO Council at its November meeting and will be used to determine the priorities for programs and initiatives over the next three years.

“Now in its 95th year, PEO faces many challenges as we approach a century of regulating the engineering profession in Ontario,” said PEO President Bob Dony, PhD, P.Eng., FIEE, FEC. “Our strategic plan will guide us on how we meet these challenges and ensure we’re doing our utmost to fulfil our mission of advancing the practice of engineering to protect the public interest.”

As part of the plan development process, PEO undertook two years of extensive research and stakeholder consultation. The resulting plan focuses on nine strategic objectives covering three priority areas: protecting the public interest, engaging stakeholders and advancing PEO’s mission.

PEO’s 2018-2020 strategic objectives include:

  • refining the delivery of its Practice Evaluation and Knowledge (PEAK) program;
  • heightening delivery and awareness of PEO’s enforcement efforts;
  • enhancing PEO’s public image;
  • engaging PEO chapters as a valuable regulatory resource;
  • increasing influence in matters regarding the regulation of the profession;
  • augmenting the applicant and licence holder experience;
  • redefining the volunteer leadership framework;
  • creating a seamless transition from student member to EIT to licence holder; and
  • enhancing PEO’s corporate culture.

 

PEO’s 2018-2020 Strategic Plan and its supporting documents are available on the association’s website at: http://www.peo.on.ca/index.php?ci_id=30697&la_id=1.
