Ontario Consulting Engineering Awards

About the OCEA

The Ontario Consulting Engineering Awards (OCEA) were created in 2003, by CEO, to recognize and honour the dedicated professionals in the consulting engineering industry. Consulting engineering firms build their businesses by designing innovative ways to improve the quality of life surrounding their projects.

The OCEA program highlights the importance of the consulting engineering profession by awarding the most outstanding projects submitted by CEO member firms the distinguished Willis Chipman Award, Awards of Distinction, and Awards of Excellence. The recipients of these awards have demonstrated the impact their knowledge, skill and expertise have made provincially, nationally and internationally.

We invite our member firms to showcase their efforts by entering projects they have worked on over the year to the 2020 OCEA program. The winners will be revealed at the OCEA Gala where their projects will be featured in professional videos which will be distributed for the firms’ use. Winners will also be publicly announced via press release. All project submissions will be on digital display at the event, published in our annual Accolades magazine – available in digital and printed formats, and mentioned through a variety of CEO’s communication channels.
