About Us

Canadian Prairies Group of Chartered Engineers

The Canadian Prairies Group of Chartered Engineers (CPGCE) is a multi-disciplinary group of members of British Engineering Institutions who live and/or work in Alberta, Saskatchewan or the Northwest Territories.

We support and further the development of all grades (C.Eng, I.Eng, Eng.Tech, Associate or Student) and welcome all to our Technical Meetings.

“Chartered Engineer (C.Eng), Incorporated Engineer (I.Eng) & Engineering Technician (Eng.Tech)” are the professional designations for engineers registered in the UK. For further information on “Professional Engineer” status and the registration process, please refer to the Engineering Council (UK).

Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE)

The CPGCE is a learned society. It furthers the technical education and interests of its members by organizing a program of technical meetings of interdisciplinary engineering interest covering, in general but not necessarily confined to, those engineering disciplines represented by the sponsoring Institutions. Attendance at a Technical meeting counts two hours towards the requirement for Continuing Professional Development (CPD). Currently all meetings are held in Calgary. Attempts have been made (and will continue to be made) to encourage extension of this program to other centres in the region (eg Edmonton, Fort McMurray, Saskatoon, Regina).

The CPGCE offers an annual International Engineering Award (Chartered Engineers' Award). This award is an open competition for any student studying an engineering discipline covered by our sponsors. Studies must be at a University or Technical College within the Canadian Prairies region. Further details can be found HERE
