More information about NEM Ontario 2023 events

After two years of hosting NEM Ontario events online, we are excited to announce the return of in-person events. Events will be happening online, in person, and a mix of both. We are looking forward to the opportunity to learn from experts in the field, connect with other engineers, and celebrate the impact of engineering in our daily lives. The goal for NEM Ontario 2023 events is to have participants come away with new or deepened knowledge, skills, or values that bring them together, benefit their communities or contribute to employability in engineering fields.

Learn. Grow. Thrive. Together. 

With bold topics, industry expertise, and diverse perspectives – National Engineering Month is Ontario’s engineering event of the year. Together we can advance the engineering profession, spark an interest in the next generation of engineering professionals and celebrate the role that engineers play in our society. We hope you can be a part of these incredible events by attending a #NEM2023 event.
