Celebrating Engineering Excellence at the 2018 OPEA Gala

2018 OPEA GalaThe Ontario Professional Engineers Awards (OPEA) Gala is the province’s most prestigious and anticipated engineering event of the year. Proudly co-presented by the Ontario Society of Professional Engineers (OSPE) and Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO), this annual gala brings industry innovators, business leaders and policy makers together to celebrate and be inspired by engineering excellence and achievement.

​​The 2018 OPEA Gala will celebrate diversity and inclusion in the engineering profession. Research shows that achieving diversity and inclusivity across sectors generates significant economic value, promotes innovation, improves decision-making and decreases unconscious bias. In an era of digital disruption where the pace of technological advancement is rapid, Ontario’s engineers and engineering community are well suited to use their voice and expertise to help foster academic and corporate cultures that reflect the diverse society in which we live.
