Representing the
Power Engineers of Ontario


The Ontario Area of the Institute of Power Engineers is a part of a National organization dedicated to promoting the role played by Power Engineers in our power-dependent economy. It is a profession with an early established history. Locally, we represent Power Engineers in Ontario.


The Institute of Power Engineers fosters business relations, social activities and provides technical presentations for the exchange of knowledge and skill. Our web site has been created to serve as a resource centre which covers issues related to Power Engineering. We hope it is both informative and beneficial to everyone who visits.
