Make a difference! Strengthen consulting engineering in Canada

Participate in ACECís #InvestInfrastructure campaign and Parliamentary Partners program

Dear ACEC Member,

We invite you to help us to educate the new and returning Members of Parliament on national issues important to our industry and shape public policy that creates a positive business and regulatory climate for our members and their clients.

October’s federal election brought a tremendous amount of change to Canadian politics and opportunities for consulting engineering companies. We have a new government with open doors and a willingness to invest in priority programs and policies.

On the heels of ACEC’s successful #VoteInfrastructure campaign during the federal election, the association has an opportunity to educate new parliamentarians about the importance of our industry to the social, economic and environmental quality of life of Canadians.

ACEC has launched InvestInfrastructure.ca. This website supports ACEC's advocacy by serving as a resource to Members of Parliament, government decision makers, stakeholders and members of the public who are interested in infrastructure.

Alongside our new #InvestInfrastructure campaign, we will be expanding our Parliamentary Partners program. The program serves to strengthen the national voice of consulting engineers by building on ACEC’s ongoing success working with Parliament.

Parliamentary Partners directly engages members in ACEC’s advocacy on a frequent and consistent basis. The program allows the association to leverage ACEC members’ local connections in their ridings and their communities year-round, engaging them in advocacy on an ongoing basis and creating a pool of experienced “citizen lobbyists” on behalf of the industry.

We invite you to get involved in these exciting initiatives! Please see InvestInfrastructure.ca and
Parliamentary Partners program (information and registration).


Sincerely,

John Gamble
President & CEO
ACEC-Canada
