Yukon Engineering Excellence Award

To recognize eminent Engineering achievements by Yukon Professional Engineers and to promote excellence in engineering applied to Yukon’s Northern climate and terrain in the areas of applied research, design, innovation, construction and project management the Yukon Engineering Excellence Award was established. The Awards Committee would like to invite you to submit a nomination for the annual award to recognize engineering achievements of our Members. We hope that in celebrating this award, we also are successful in raising the public’s awareness of the engineering profession in Yukon.
