that we do. ACEC has been blessed with a series of
strong Boards and committed Chairs. For 2002-2003,
our new Chair, Pierre Shoiry, will have a very capable
team working with him at the Board and in our
ACEC offices. Pierre will provide strong leadership
with sound business knowledge.
The pieces are now in place for a great effort. The
next steps are as follows: 1) we need to raise a war
chest through a dues increase in 2003 and beyond
2) we need to involve more leaders from our member
firms at the MO and national level and 3) we need

and with his team will keep us on track. To quote
Claude Paul: “priorities exist so that we can say ‘no’
to other good ideas.”
The need is great and the obligation is manifest.
The Vision is clear and the objectives are estimable.
The Plan is in place and now we need your time,

There is a strong team in place, as well, in the
Member Organizations (MO). Since I joined the
ACEC Board, I have traveled from Whitehorse
to Vancouver to St. John’s, and as Chair, I have
been invited to MO events as varied as Awards
Ceremonies, Premier’s Receptions, Annual Meetings,
and breakfasts with Provincial Cabinets. We are
strong. We have good people working on our
behalf in every region.
Our MO’s are working with ACEC as a team.
In some cases, leadership is being provided by a
MO (publicity for example) in others by the ACEC
(federal lobbying). We are working hard to build
upon the strengths and experience of each organization. Together, we are working towards a goal of
zero duplication and no wasted effort. The Executive

P r e s i d e n t ’s R e p o r t
In spite of the tragic events of September in the United States and their aftershock around
the world, the Canadian consulting engineering industry is doing well. The financial
performance of most firms has been good to very good and, on the whole, industry leaders
feel moderately positive about business conditions in Canada. These are the conclusions of
the 2001 ACEC National Business Survey of Members, reflecting the general resilience of the
industry and the strength of Canada’s economy. There certainly seems to be a level of
confidence that allows us to be positive about the present, and optimistic about the future.
As I take over the responsibilities of

firms to benchmark themselves, ACEC serves as the
voice, as well as the eyes and ears of the industry
nationally and internationally. In the short period
that I have been in my position, I have been struck by
the solid reputation of ACEC among decision-makers
who look to ACEC for the industry’s perspective on
key national issues related to construction.
As is evident in this Annual Report, ACEC has been
very active over the past year. As a result of extensive
consultations within the industry and with the
provincial Member Organizations, the leadership
has clearly identified the association’s five priorities,
A major change in 2001 was the phasing out of
the Export Division and the integration of the trade
support services into the core activities of ACEC. The
resulting loss of the $60,000 of revenues generated
by the Export Division has put pressures on the
Association’s budget, but the executive has taken
measures to address this challenge.
In closing, I want to express my sincere appreciation
to our Chair, Andrew Steeves, for his guidance in
my first months in the position, as well as to the
ACEC office staff for their support. Special thanks

Malgré les événements tragiques du mois de septembre aux États-Unis et leur contrecoup à travers le
monde, l’industrie canadienne du génie-conseil se porte bien. La plupart des firmes affichent de bons résultats

Implementing the five priorities
Over the past year, ACEC has been very active in implementing its five new priorities and the
related strategies. The priorities were identified as a result of extensive consultations within
the industry and with the provincial Member Organizations. The five priorities are:

With the phasing out of the Export Division last year,

that will guide the future of ACEC international

In addition to the National Committees, the ACEC has
twelve different committees and taskforces to deal with
a host of issues that face the consulting engineering
industry. The committees are composed of representatives of member firms from across the country.

industry to the federal government. Below is a list of key initiatives undertaken by the ACEC on behalf of
its member firms:
