On May 28th, 2016, a group of EITs and P. Eng members from the Etobicoke chapter visited the Redpath Sugar Factory as part of Doors Open Toronto. The group met at Royal York station, before travelling downtown to see the sugar factory.
The visit consisted of a self-guided tour of the facilities, Virtual Reality plant walk arounds, learning stations and a visit with the plant operators. A film about sugar processing, sugar samples and giveaways rounded out the experience. The group also visited the Redpath Sugar Museum to learn more about the historical processing of sugar and Redpath’s legacy in Canada.
This event was organized by the Etobicoke Chapter EIT Sub-Committee. We look forward to bringing EIT and P. Eng members similar opportunities to learn and network within our community!
