The Repeal of the Industrial Exemption to Licence – are you prepared?
An informative presentation for anyone in the manufacturing industry
The repeal of the industrial exemption was one of 66 amendments made to the Professional Engineers Act on October 25, 2010, to reduce inter-provincial/territorial trade barriers and business costs, and to improve workplace safety in Ontario.
This presentation will be conducted by Marisa Sterling, the enforcement officer with Professional Engineers of Ontario (PEO), and is currently the manager of PEO’s industrial exemption efforts. As manager, she has a mandate to broadly educate the manufacturing industry in Ontario about the pending repeal of the industrial exemption and to gain voluntary compliance from industry through the transition period.
This presentation will be informative and relevant for anyone working in the manufacturing industry, including both technical and human resource departments. Please forward this invitation to anyone that could benefit from learning about the Industrial Exemption.
When: January 15th, 2013 7:30 - 9:00 pm
Where: Queen Elizabeth Community and Cultural Center, Multipurpose Room 1 – C094

About Our Chapter
Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO) is the self-regulating body for approximately 80,000 professional engineers in this province. As such it ensures the highest level of professionalism among engineers working in the public interest. For purposes of governance and administration, Ontario is divided into five regions, with each region further subdivided into chapters.
PEO’s membership is made up of 36 chapters defined by geographical area. This means that its members live and work in the area the chapter serves and have a strong connection to the surrounding community. PEO chapters are active in delivering educational outreach, organizing community events and liaising with local government.
Oakville Chapter is part of the larger West Central Region and its boundaries include all of Oakville and Milton.
