As a global leader in self-regulation, PEO relies heavily on its volunteers. More than 1,000 professional engineers, engineering interns and non-engineers volunteer their time each year on behalf of the association through participation in governance and operations.
To help our volunteers be productive and to help make their volunteer experience enjoyable, we have developed a Volunteer Manual to support you in your new role as a PEO volunteer. This manual will provide you information about PEO’s regulatory role, its governance structure and its volunteer policies and procedures. There is also information on PEO’s recognition program and awards.
As the regulator of the engineering profession in Ontario, PEO relies on licence holders' voluntary participation to help govern and manage its affairs. This is achieved through an organization of committees and ad hoc task forces. Committees are appointed by Council to address a continuing need and generally stand for several years. Task forces have limited life-span and are appointed by Council or its Executive Committee, to study issues, develop recommendations or oversee special initiatives.

Volunteer Compliance training
The Government of Ontario mandates that volunteers receive occupational health and safety and accessibility training. The intent of the training is to educate PEO volunteers on their rights and responsibilities as volunteers, as well as their duties when working in a volunteer capacity, so that they may perform their work safely and in compliance with the law. Your completion of the legislated training courses is required by December 31, 2019.
