The Ontario Society of Professional Engineers (OSPE) is developing an exciting new program aimed at helping internationally trained engineers (ITEs) highlight their skills. As a follow-up to some research that OSPE has been undertaking with employers, OSPE has now developed an online survey to collect information on the experiences of ITEs - positive or negative - in seeking employment as an engineer in Ontario. 

The results of the surveys will support OSPE in designing programs that facilitate more effective bridging between the skills that employers need and the skills of engineers, particularly those seeking opportunities in the Canadian workforce.

Eligible participants involved in this bridging program will benefit by: 

Taking part in events and workshops about Canadian recruitment and hiring practices within the engineering industry. 

Receiving an overview of job-related information gathered from engineering companies across Ontario.

Networking with peers and sharing ideas about how to position your skills for success.

We would greatly appreciate your assistance by forwarding the survey to any internationally trained engineers in your network. The survey will take you approximately 20 minutes to complete and will help us in developing appropriate supports for ITEs in this program. The survey can be accessed at:

If you would like to become informed of upcoming events and resources as a result of this project, please email me at:

MiningConferences & Trade Fairs

Processing ores and aggregates in mining can require enormous amounts of water. Many mines are located in areas with limited water resources or where growing communities and industries compete with mines for water use. Indeed, water resources, in general, are becoming more limited even as environmental regulations tighten across North America. Using, recycling and disposing of water are becoming bigger issues than ever before for mining companies – one that requires extensive thought, planning, and execution of strategies to address these challenges.

As a result of these pressures, forward-looking mining operations are doing a number of things to manage water use. To stay commercially viable, they're implementing and refining water management systems that ensure efficiency, cost-savings, sustainability and regulatory compliance. They're maximizing their opportunities to recycle and reuse water in their processes. They're assessing short-term solutions in conjunction with long-term preparation to ensure they can be prepared for tightening water regulation while keeping their processes and production optimal, cost-effective and sustainable.

Find out how at Infocast's 2nd Water Management for Mining Summit, to be held in the mining capital of North America, Toronto, Canada. The only Canadian mining water event, this leading-edge Summit provides mining and water technology companies, engineers, and water infrastructure specialists with a unique forum to meet, network, dig into the issues, and brainstorm solutions for effective water management for the industry.

Attend and gain valuable strategies for:

Minimizing and optimizing water use throughout the stages of mining production.
Developing long-term water management strategies to serve the life of the mine, from beginning to post-closure
Lessening the impact of mining on water quality and developing long-term sustainability plans


This is a must attend event for mining companies, field service companies, water technology companies, water infrastructure specialists, engineers, and consultants.



We will allow any company who believes they will be reaching the right audience by attending this event, be an exhibitor.
