Illuminating Engineering Society
I bet it happens to you all the time! You bump into a lighting person at the
theatre or crowded restaurant and they're the ones looking up at the ceiling
instead of where they are going. They are fascinated by the lighting only!
Another thing lighting people have in common are the tales of discovery.
Most people tell you that they caught the lighting bug quite by accident and
can often be heard retelling stories to our colleagues about how they first
entered into this dynamic industry. The ED50 introductory course is an exciting opportunity to help start a new
generation of "lighting people."

Although there have been some ups and downs in the past decade, Canada's construction industry is experiencing steady growth.
From commercial to residential construction, construction companies across Canada are staying busy.

A new transmission line will be built between Manitoba and Saskatchewan as part of a multi-million dollar deal that will ship electricity west.

One local high school will be getting a $4.5 million upgrade from the province.

The province recently announced $500,000 in funding to create 18 new spots for the program.
"Civil, electrical, industrial and mechanical engineers are in demand in our province and increasing the number of engineering graduates is necessary to create more good jobs and keep our economy growing," Premier Greg Selinger said.
The Manitoba government is funding more than $250,000 in new equipment for technical vocational courses at Murdoch Mackay Collegiate.
The school's metal fabrication program will see $175,000 to purchase three mills, two lathes, two power MIG machines and one welding fabrication table.
"We're really proud of our vocational programs and (this) announcement means our students in metals, fashion, graphic arts and electronics at Murdoch MacKay will be able to develop their skills on state-of-the-art equipment and be well prepared for post-secondary training and jobs in the industry," said Colleen Carswell, chair, board of trustees, River East School Division.

Five provinces, including Saskatchewan, are currently getting it right when it comes to producing electrical power supplies for their residents according to the Conference Board of Canada.
The board released their report recently, indicating the existing mix of electricity generation technologies in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec is the most efficient given the policy, costs and resources constraints.
