Our Story


Engineers of Tomorrow is a national charitable organization established in 2014. Our mission is to tell better stories about engineering today to raise awareness about the engineering profession and better inform the engineers of tomorrow.

From the clean water we drink to the technology in our hands, engineering underpins every aspect of modern life and has a major role to play in solving the global challenges of today and tomorrow.

Our vision is that one day every Canadian – regardless of gender, ethnicity, orientation, religion, ability or thinking style – understands the power of engineering to unlock and shape positive societal change. We look forward to a day when everyone understands there’s a place for them in engineering.

Using the latest research as a tool to inform our practices, we create positive engineering experiences to shape young minds and showcase what the engineering profession is all about. By taking a grassroots approach, we enable systemic change by supporting engineering professionals to create impact.
