Lola Mireya Hidalgo is an engineer and proud P.Eng. with the Ministry of Transportation’s provincial highways management division. Hidalgo began her career with the MTO Engineering Development Program after graduating from Concordia University in civil engineering. She progressed to more senior roles and now works in the provincial Contract Management Office in St. Catharines, Ontario. Hidalgo has gained diverse engineering experience, including working in Latin America, Asia and over five different Canadian cities in the private, public and non-profit sectors. She has recent experience in the transportation infrastructure construction, engineering, maintenance, 3P and policy areas. Hidalgo was raised in Montreal and is now a proud resident of Burlington, Ontario. She has a long history of serving her local communities and chose the engineering profession as it allowed her to pursue her commitment to contribute to improving social infrastructure. She has been actively involved with groups such as Tomorrow Ontario’s Public Service, Project Management Institute, Canadian Red Cross, AIESEC, Engineers Without Borders, Transportation Association of Canada, municipal advisory committees and the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering. Recently she volunteered for Burlington’s Sound of Music Festival and 2017 North American Indigenous Games. She enjoys playing piano, continuous learning, travelling with her supportive husband (who is also a P.Eng.) and meeting new people with diverse opinions. Hidalgo is passionate about giving back to those in her community and is honoured to serve on PEO Council and proud to represent the beautiful Western Region.
