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.

Dutch engineers test glow-in-the-dark 'smart highway'
Luminescent powder in paint has given a glow to 500 meters of Dutch highway, resulting in a trial section of glow-in-the-dark road.
Designer Daan Roosegaarde, who won best future concept for the idea at the Dutch Design Awards in 2012, is collaborating with Heijmans, a Dutch civil engineering firm, to create such interactive highways. Almost two years later, the project is coming to fruition with some adjustments, according Slate.
Ontario commits $25 million for cycling infrastructure
Transportation Minister Glen Murray has announced that the province will provide $25 million for cycling facilities on provincial highways and municipal roads over the next three years in an effort to make Ontario Canada's premier cycling province.
Bank study calls for investment in weather-related infrastructure
As a return on investment, Duff's Ditch has been a spectacular success.
Manitoba’s Red River Floodway, built by premier Duff Roblin for just under $63 million in the mid-1960s with the federal government covering 60 per cent of the cost, has spared the city of Winnipeg an estimated $30 billion in flood damages in the nearly half century since it was completed in 1968.
Leadership in Sustainable Infrastructure/Leadership en infrastructures
What legacy will the PanAm/ParaPan games leave on Toronto's infrastructure?
Big sporting extravaganzas are always meant to be good for the host city. It’s how the evangelists that make up the bid committees sell it to governments and residents. And during the bidding process and the lead-up to the games, whether they be Olympics, Commonwealth, or PanAm/ParaPan, everyone gets worked up into an optimistic froth about how awesome all the new stuff they’re getting is going to be.
But we’re Canadians. We hosted what were arguably the world’s most infrastructurally disastrous Olympics. It may have been way back in 1976, but since Montreal only ended up paying them off about a decade ago, the memory’s still fresh. So when the PanAm/ParaPan Games came up for grabs, we were going to need a little more than happy froth and a pretty velodrome to sell us.
Engineering students design road realignment of flood area
Daily Business Buzz
A pair of civil engineering students in Corner Brook (Newfoundland & Labrador) would love to be able to lend a hand to the design of the realignment of Route 460. Flooding on White’s Road near Noel’s Pond has been a problem for years, often causing traffic delays and even shutting down the highway at times.
Transportation and Works Minister Nick McGrath recently announced construction will soon begin on a new bypass road. The realignment of Route 460 from Gull Pond to Route 490 is expected to encompass about six kilometres of roadway.
Improving Highway Infrastructure Near Nolalu
Government of Ontario
Ontario is creating 16 new jobs while improving infrastructure on Highway 588 east of Nolalu.
The Whitefish River Bridge, four kilometres west of the Highway 590 junction, is being renovated to improve travel and safety for families and businesses while strengthening tourism and the economy in the Northwest.
