The Canadian Academy of Engineering (CAE) is a national organization that allows Canada’s most prominent and experienced engineers to provide strategic advice on the nation’s most important matters. Fellows of the CAE are elected by their peers, with the main criterion being their distinguished achievements and their contributions to the engineering discipline. Fellows of the CAE use their expertise to ensure the prosperity and well-being of Canada and its citizens. 

Fifty new Fellows and two International Fellows were welcomed by President Yves Beauchamp into the Canadian Academy of Engineering on June 15th, 2020. The ceremony was held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic, in conjunction with the Academy’s 2020 Annual General Meeting. The 2020 Induction Dinner has been postponed and will take place in Halifax, Nova Scotia during the 2021 Annual General Meeting.
