On April 3, 2019, Engineers and Geoscientists BC hosted Legislature Day in Victoria. Over two events, we connected with 40 MLAs and ministers from across the province, highlighting how BC’s 35,000 professional engineers and geoscientists pursue progress and prosperity for all British Columbians, while balancing the need for a safe, secure, and sustainable future.
During the lunch event, Andrew Wilkinson, Leader of the Official Opposition and MLA Vancouver-Quilchena spoke on behalf of the opposition caucus. At the evening reception, Hon. Melanie Mark, Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Training brought greetings from the Province. Both events were emceed by President Dr. Katherina-Tarnai Lokhorst, P.Eng., FEC, and included a presentation by Ann English, P.Eng., CEO and Registrar on the association’s response to the Professional Governance Act.

Melanie Mark, Minister for Advanced Education, Skills, and Training; Bowinn Ma, P.Eng., Parliamentary Secretary for Translink and MLA North Vancouver-Lonsdale; Ralph Sultan, P.Eng., MLA West Vancouver-Capilano, and Sonia Furstenau, MLA Cowichan Valley.
