PRESS RELEASE

Toronto – (May 13, 2019) – In recognition of his substantial and ongoing contributions to the profession, Luc Roberge, P.Eng., FEC, of North Bay, Ontario, has been named a Member of the Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO) Order of Honour. He was inducted into the Order at a gala on May 3 in Toronto.

For the past 15 years, Roberge has worked tirelessly to raise the profile of the northern engineers and served to establish strong links between licence holders, PEO and the community. Roberge has been an active PEO volunteer serving on the executive committees of the Porcupine/Kapuskasing, North Bay and Algoma chapters.

Roberge served as vice chair and chair with the North Bay Chapter in 2012-2013, where he was instrumental in reviewing and updating its communication strategy with members. He also chaired the Engineers Day and Bridge Building committees and served on the majority of the chapter’s event committees. He rejuvenated the chapter’s bridge building event for local students and greatly increased student participation, notably from francophone schools.

A strong volunteer leader, Roberge is currently chair of the Porcupine/Kapuskasing Chapter, and his passion and enthusiasm for the engineering profession inspires and motivates others to participate and step into leadership roles.

For him, the personal benefits of volunteering include learning new skills and networking. “It helps you become a more rounded person and opens the door to more opportunities,” he says.

The Order of Honour pays tribute to individuals who have rendered conspicuous service to the engineering profession. The rank of Member is bestowed upon those who have served the profession by contributing substantially to its operation or improvement in its status.
