Chartered Engineers Pacific serves members of the ICE, IMechE, IET, IStructE, and CIBSE located in British Columbia, Washington State, Yukon and Alaska.
The Group was formerly known as the Western Canada Group of Chartered Engineers (WCGCE).
Chartered Engineers Pacific (CEP) exists to extend the Professional Engineering Institutions' services to their overseas members, and to deliver inspirational engineering events and networking opportunities. CEP also assists local engineers, EITs and technologists with an interest in European practices and/or aspirations to register professionally in Europe, to join the appropriate Institution.
Founded in 1987 as an amalgamation of the Western Canada branches of the Institutions of Civil, Mechanical and Electrical Engineers, the Group expanded in 1994 to include members of the Institutions of Structural and Chemical Engineers. In 1998 the Group expanded again to include the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers. The Institution of Chemical Engineers terminated its sponsorship in 2011. The Group now represents over 1,000 members of UK Professional Engineering Institutions whom reside in British Columbia, Washington State, Yukon and Alaska.
