The Ontario Engineering Project Awards (OEPA), formally the OCEA, has been highlighting the importance of the consulting engineering profession since 2003. Each year outstanding projects submitted by ACEC-Ontario member firms, of all sizes, are recognized and awarded. The recipients of these awards have demonstrated the impact their knowledge, skill and expertise have made provincially, nationally and internationally.
Get ready to share your projects, we want to hear all about them.
It doesn’t matter if your company consists of 5, 50, or 500 people. It doesn’t matter whether the project was valued at $10,000, $1,000,000 or $100,000,000. If your project or internal initiative is innovative and made an impact as described under the designated award category, you should submit it for consideration.
We are doing something new this year!
The process has been weighed and measured and now streamlined to encourage a broader range of submissions. Levelling the playing field and recognizing firms for a variety of their contributions to the industry and society!
For starters, the awards program has been reformatted, instead of a single winner in each of the Awards of Distinction categories, we will now recognize the top 10 project submissions across all categories. In addition, we are excited to introduce three new awards categories – Sustainability Award, Small Firm – Big Impact, and Internal Innovation.
Finally, to simplify the process, we have elimination of the Intention to Submit, the requirement for a client letter as a part of the formal submission and projects now qualify from the previous TWO years.
The deadline for submission is January 27, 2023.
The gala will be celebrated on Wednesday, May 10th, 2023. Click here for event details.
We look forward to seeing your dazzling projects in 2023!
