Lola Hidalgo is an engineer and proud P.Eng. with the Ministry of Transportation’s (MTO) provincial highways management division. Hidalgo began her career with the MTO Engineering Development Program after graduating in 2007 from Concordia University in civil engineering. She progressed to more senior roles and now works in the provincial construction and engineering section of the Contract Management Office in St. Catharines. 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.
