Ontario Engineering Project Awards

Let's celebrate you, our member firms, and all the work you accomplish each year at the Ontario Engineering Project Awards (OEPA)!

We are thrilled to announce the return of the Ontario Engineering Projects Awards (OEPA) for 2023!

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 – Sustainable Development Impact, 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.

More details can be found in our 2023 Submission guidelines document, click here. The deadline for submission is January 27, 2023.  Projects can be submitted via WeTransfer to Lauryn Weinberger lweinberger@acecontario.ca.

**For any company that submitted an award in 2022, your submission will be automatically rolled over to 2023 program.  If you have any questions about the project, please contact Lauryn Weinberger lweinberger@acecontario.ca

The gala will be celebrated in May 2023. We will share more details in the near future.

We look forward to seeing your dazzling projects in 2023!
