Chair's Message

I am pleased to address you as the 41st chair of the Willowdale/Thornhill Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO) Chapter.

I am humbled and honoured to have the opportunity to lead the chapter, now in its 57th year of service to our community. Willowdale/Thornhill is home to many local landmarks: Mel Lastman Square, Seneca College’s Newnham Campus, the golf and country clubs in Thornhill, four major shopping malls, the Sheppard subway line, and even the headquarters of both the Ontario Society of Professional Engineers and PEO.

It is also home to more than 5,000 professional engineers and interns, whose daily work spans the gamut of engineering disciplines and plays a significant role in the betterment of Canadian society. Whether it’s the water that comes out of your tap, the skyscrapers that make up our city skylines, medical technology that saves human life, or the electronic gadgets that are staples of 21st-century living, the professional engineers of our community have made significant contributions to our daily lives.

The Willowdale/Thornhill PEO Chapter has an excellent reputation for serving our engineering community and the province as a whole. Among the chapter's activities:

- Planning, organizing and hosting licensing presentation ceremonies, commemorating and welcoming newly licensed professional engineers
- Hosting seminars, workshops, and talks of interest to the engineering community
- Organizing engineering-themed activities for school-aged children during National Engineering Month
- Awarding scholarships to students pursuing engineering
- Offering mentoring services for engineering interns through PEO's Licence Assistance Program
- Lobbying the provincial government in the interests of the engineering profession
- Awarding excellence in engineering and community service through our awards program
- Linking our community together through our publications, website, and social media

I look forward to the months ahead and I invite you to visit our website on a regular basis. As always, please do not hesitate to contact me at if you have suggestions or concerns.
