    Committees and working groups   

    The OIQ seeks to involve members in improving the regulation of the profession, raising its profile, and continuing to shape it. Many engineers volunteer to serve on OIQ committees and working groups in the interest of doing their part to achieve these objectives.


    Committees

    Committees are formed once a year following a structured selection process, which may vary from one committee to another. Some committees are called “statutory" committees, which means that their composition and responsibilities are governed by the Professional Code.


    Working groups

    Working groups are formed by the President or the Executive Director to assist management, the Board of Directors, or a committee in its deliberations or work. They are composed of members who have specific expertise and, where necessary, non-engineers. Working groups are formed on an ad hoc basis, as needed.

    Are you interested in participating in an OIQ committee or working group?


    For committees:

    Fill out this form and email it along with your résumé to comites@oiq.qc.ca. You can also send any questions you have about the committees to the same address.

    Please note that the composition of the committees is reviewed every year and a call for applications is launched every spring. Even when there are no vacancies among the committees, the applications received from potential candidates are kept in a database for one year so that any vacancies that open up during a term can be filled.
