PEO Council 2017-2018

Christian Bellini, P.Eng., FEC

Christian Bellini began his engineering career in 1995 at a small structural engineering firm called Blackwell. Today, he is a principal at the same firm, now 50 strong with offices in Toronto, Waterloo, Victoria and Halifax and an international portfolio of projects. A key characteristic of the firm is a high level of engineering engagement at all levels, which allows him to carry out engineering design on a daily basis in addition to his administrative duties. His volunteer career at PEO began in 2005 when he joined the Experience Requirements Committee (ERC), serving in later years as vice chair and chair. In 2012, he chaired the Overlapping Practices Committee, which successfully developed an approach to deal with perceived scope overlap between engineering and natural science. In addition to the ERC, he now serves on the Licensing Committee, the Finance Committee, the Legislation Committee and the Advisory Committee on Volunteers. He has contributed to various Engineers Canada initiatives, holding the position of vice chair on Engineers Canada’s Licensing Affairs Committee and having served on PEO’s National Framework Task Force, which was struck to provide PEO feedback to Engineers Canada on their Canadian Framework for Licensure project, and participated in Engineers Canada’s competency-based experience assessment project. On an academic front, Bellini has taught structures courses at the University of Waterloo and Laurentian University. He is also frequently invited as a guest critic at Architecture Studio Reviews at University of Toronto, Ryerson University and Dalhousie University.
