The Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO) celebrates a century of serving the public interest through regulation of the practice of engineering in the province.
“This is a proud moment for PEO,” said President Nick Colucci, P.Eng., FEC. “As we pause to reflect on this wonderful accomplishment, we recognize the need to continuously evolve as a regulator to ensure we effectively fulfil our legislative mandate for the next 100 years.”
To this end, PEO has initiated major transformation initiatives to become a more modern, enlightened and responsive regulator. Work began in 2018 with an independent review of PEO’s regulatory performance, which has subsequently led to several noteworthy achievements, including:
“We are unwavering in our commitment to enhancing all our public protection activities including our licensing, complaints and discipline processes, establishing performance guidelines and standards, and taking action against unlicensed individuals who illegally describe themselves as engineers,” added Colucci.
“PEO’s regulatory mandate helps to make Ontario a better, safer place in which to live, and I look forward to continuing the transformative path we’ve embarked on as we begin our next century.”
