We must be proactive to ensure that we have the engineering resources to respond to this increased demand. Our goal with the Awards of Excellence Program is to challenge and motivate Manitoba consulting firms to strive for excellence so we may continue to compete nationally and internationally and also be in a position to attract the best and brightest engineers to our province."
