Sustaining Members are corporations or individuals providing financial support to The EIC Fund, a registered charity.
The EIC Fund
The EIC Fund is a registered charity whose primary aim is the recognition of excellence and the advancement of engineering and engineering education in Canada. Specifically, the EIC Fund:
- Supports a quality assurance program that recognizes quality providers of continuing education and professional development. These providers commit to internationally-recognized process standards for the delivery of their courses as a condition for issuing EIC-accredited Continuing Education Units.
- Annually recognizes outstanding engineers from amongst the members of the twelve EIC Constituent Societies with Fellowships and Medals at a prestigious awards gala.
- Recognizes outstanding Canadians who have influenced the engineering profession by installing them as Honorary Members of the EIC. Sustaining members may nominate candidates for this distinction.
- Donates to specific organizations that foster an interest in engineering on the part of youth, e.g. Youth Science Canada, the Canadian Engineering Memorial Foundation, EPIC Award for Excellence Scholarships and CDA Scholarships.
Decisions on use of the EIC Fund are made EIC Council (trustees). Individual members of EIC Constituent Societies may submit funding requests for specific initiatives or uses of the EIC Fund in writing directly to their own Constituent Society, which shall vet such requests prior to submission to EIC Council. For more information regarding the EIC Fund, please visit its listing on the CRA Charities Directorate.
