Event description

Description

Abstract:

A breach in the tailings pond at the Mt. Polley copper mine in British Columbia created a deluge of contaminated water to flow into nearby rivers and lakes. The breach also created a deluge of concern about “professional reliance”, the scheme that allowed professionals, including engineers, to make decisions about public welfare without government oversight. In this presentation, Bernard Ennis, P.Eng. will look at the changes affecting the engineering profession that have been introduced in British Columbia and its implications for the profession in Ontario.

Speaker:

Bernard Ennis, P. Eng. is Director, Policy and Professional Affairs at Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO). He is responsible for directing PEO regulatory policy development activities, identifying policy change opportunities, researching and writing about policy issues, and advancing policy objectives by engaging with key stakeholders and public servants. Mr. Ennis is also responsible for administering PEO activities related to establishing and developing standards of practice for professional engineering.
