Start a Promise to Future Generations Chapter at your School
The University of Toronto, in conjunction with the CSCE Toronto Chapter, held their 5th annual Promise to Future Generations signing ceremony on June 19th, 2013, with over 30 new signatories from local Universities and industry. This initiative, created by students, encourages signees to look beyond the "me" and "now" to consider the needs of future generations. Visit http://www.ptfg.org/ for more information and contact Amie (email@example.com) if you are interested in starting a chapter at your school.
Promesse envers les générations à venir

Concordia's Global Engineering Week to discuss sustainable approaches to engineering
With a name that conjures up images of globetrotting engineers bringing infrastructure to impoverished nations, one might imagine a week of events organized by Concordia’s chapter of Engineers Without Borders to be composed of lectures and seminars about engineering in developing countries.
Students learn to build bridges, relationships during engineering competition
Because the strength of any structure is in the design, building bridges that don't collapse under great weight is perhaps the greatest challenge and responsibility of any civil engineer.
For kids, it's just a fun way to learn about physics and co-operation. That's just what some 150 10 and 11-year-olds got up to Saturday at Richmond Hill's Alexander Mackenzie High School.
Students think outside the box to tackle TTC problems
Not all big ideas seem like big ideas at first.
After Andy Byford took the top job at the TTC in 2011, he kept noticing that subway cars would be filthy and strewn with garbage by mid-afternoon. When he asked about it, he learned they were only cleaned at the end of the day.
So now, he told a group of engineering students at the University of Toronto last week, subway cars are cleaned while they're out of service during the day.

A case for boarding the infrastructure train
The Globe and Mail
Investors are often enticed by dramatic, "sexy" options. Think hip technology companies in Silicon Valley, and gold miners making discoveries in a remote jungle. Or if their personalities are more conservative, they choose to invest in traditional, easy-to-understand companies such as banks or retailers.
Collaboration can help slay Ontario infrastructure deficit
Daily Commerical News
With a $60 billion infrastructure deficit hanging over Ontario, it's imperative that both the government and industry work together to tackle the issues. "Back when I started at Infrastructure Ontario (IO) in 2005, we had an $8-billion hospital infrastructure deficit. Nobody talks about that anymore because we've slayed the hospital infrastructure deficit. It's now time to slay the transit and transportation infrastructure deficit," said IO executive vice-president, major projects John McKendrick, at the Residential and Civil Construction Alliance of Ontario (RCCAO) Pre-Budget Roundtable on infrastructure investments.
Government releases largest infrastructure plan
Rocky View Weekly
Canada is turning the page on the global recession. It's happening in real time, right now.
In January, our country gained nearly 30,000 net new jobs, well above market expectations, according to Statistics Canada. Canada has added more than one million net new jobs since the depths of the global recession; the best job creation record of any G-7 country.
