Who Are We

CSCE National and Calgary Section are currently identifying programs, activities, and awards to attract Young Professional involvement with the CSCE. A Young Professionals website and social media access are also in development.

The Calgary Section of the The Canadian Society for Civil Engineering (CSCE) is a local branch of the national CSCE organization. We operate under the guidelines and mandates of the national organization, and are one of 21 local Sections in Canada and 1 Section in Hong Kong.

The CSCE national organization was founded in 1887 as a professional society for civil engineers. The head office is located in Montreal.

The objectives of the society are:
  • To facilitate the acquisition and interchange of professional knowledge among its members.
  • To promote the acquisition of that species of knowledge which has special reference to the profession of civil engineering.
  • To encourage investigation in connection with all branches and departments of knowledge connected with the profession.

The Society has local Sections across Canada which provide regular technical programs, supplemented with special technical workshops and seminars of special interest to that community. Through participation at the local level, members have an opportunity to keep up to date on current civil engineering projects, and to network with colleagues within the community.

Technical Divisions and Committees organize specialty technical conferences and state of the art publications. Membership provides an opportunity to maintain an edge in current technical advancements in the profession.

CSCE is governed by a Board of Directors representing the following sectors of the Society:

  • Local Sections
  • Technical Activities Committee
  • Professional Activities Committee
  • General Administration Committee


To promote the profession of civil engineering through knowledge, education, practice, training and research in Calgary and region.



The Canadian Society for Civil Engineering will be the leading learned society disseminating new technologies, tools, techniques and practices for civil engineering in Calgary and region.
