Below you’ll find information about leading an event at NEM Ontario

In 2022, NEM Ontario events will be delivered using a hybrid model and focused on lifelong learning. In these times of great adaptation, nothing is as powerful as practicing how to learn and expanding our perspectives as a community.

We will support event leaders to run online zoom events designed for learning outcomes. Whether you lead a panel discussion, workshop with skill-building components or a networking event, all funded Ontario #NEM2022 events will be geared for post-secondary students, professionals in our community, and interdisciplinary professionals. 

All event leaders may apply for up to $500 in funding to cover expenses such as honoraria for experts, marketing, and development costs. Not-for-profit organizations may ask for up to 50% of their funding to cover the time associated with running the event. 

All #NEM2022 events will be curated thematically with Engineers Canada for a synched-up national NEM. Your event will be part of an online portal with many awesome learning experiences daily. Here’s a sneak peek at the schedule for NEM 2022.

Week 1 The P.Eng. Designation
Week 2 Lifelong Learning
Week 3 Spotlight on the Engineering Student Challenge
Week 4 Equity, Diversity & Inclusion
Week 5 Engineers & Politics
