Order of Honour: Call for Nominations

PEO is seeking nominations for the Order of Honour, PEO’s highest volunteer recognition program that honours PEO volunteers who have made substantial contributions to support PEO’s statutory mandate to regulate the engineering profession in Ontario to protect the public interest.

Deadline: Friday, October 11, 2024 at 4:00 p.m. EST.

Eligibility: Consideration for induction into the Order is open to P.Eng. licence holders who have served PEO, its chapters and the profession as long-time volunteers, typically through service on PEO Council, committees and their subcommittees, task forces, chapters, as well as representing PEO on external boards and advisory groups. 

Nominees may be considered for induction into one of three categories, depending on their length of volunteer service: Member (10+ years), Officer (15+ years) and Companion (20+ years)

Nominations: Nominations may be made by three P.Eng. licence holders (one lead nominator and two co-nominators) who know the nominee and their volunteer work. Please see The nomination process in 8 steps below for detailed nomination instructions, as well as the Guidelines for nomination and selection.

Upgrade nominations (for existing Order of Honour inductees) may be made by three P.Eng. licence holders. The rationale and examples from nominators should highlight the substantive contributions and impact made by the nominee following the original induction into the Order.

Order of Honour commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion: In keeping with PEO’s Anti-Racism and Equity Code, PEO seeks Order nominees who reflect the diversity of the engineering profession in Ontario. We encourage nominations from a wide array of backgrounds: different ages, racial/ethnic backgrounds, and gender identity.

Nomination process in eight steps

As a lead nominator, you can nominate a worthy Order of Honour candidate—a long-time PEO volunteer colleague, mentor, friend, leader—by logging into the PEO portal and following these eight simple steps.
