About the ACEC-Canada Young Professionals Network
The ACEC-YPN is a network of YP groups located across Canada. The first provincial ACEC YP group was established in Alberta in 2005, since that time YP groups in British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, and New Brunswick emerged and thrived. Newer YP groups in the Northwest Territories, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador, and PEI have now been established and continue to grow.
The YPN will unite and strengthen the YP network across Canada by promoting best practices and leadership while also creating a network of cross-disciplined and diverse engineers who will be the future leaders of the Canadian consulting engineering industry.
