Generally, each year Chapter Executive members organize up to six events. These events include interactive forums to discuss PEO regulatory issues, presentations on technical topics, visits or tours of engineering works and plants, and talks or seminars on various personal interest subjects. To raise the awareness and to promote the profession of engineering, the Chapter conducts presentations to Etobicoke area high school students in conjunction with National Engineering Week activities. The Chapter Executive also organizes License Presentation Ceremonies to new members of the PEO together with neighbouring PEO chapters.
