PEO recognizes accomplishments and service to the engineering profession through awards and recognition programs, and nominations for external honours.
The Order of Honour recognizes professional engineers and others who have rendered conspicuous service to the engineering profession, normally through association.
The Ontario Professional Engineer Awards are presented in partnership with the Ontario Society of Professional Engineers and recognize professional engineers in Ontario who have made outstanding contributions to their profession and their community.
The G. Gordon M. Sterling Engineering Intern Award recognizes engineering interns who demonstrate leadership potential within the engineering profession.
The S.E. Wolfe Thesis Award is presented to the engineer whose thesis was awarded the highest mark of all those presented during the year.
The V.G. Smith Award is presented to an engineer who achieved the highest examination standing during the year.
The President's Award recognizes non-engineers who have shown continuous support of, and made significant contributions to, advancing the engineering profession in Ontario.
In addition to these awards, the PEO Awards Committee nominates outstanding PEO licence holders and EITs for honours and awards given by external agencies either as particularly distinguished professional engineers or as outstanding citizens. One such honour is the Fellows of Engineers Canada, where Engineers Canada recognizes individuals for their noteworthy service to the engineering profession, and bestows the privilege of the use of the designation “Fellow of Engineers Canada”, or FEC.
