As volunteers, we give our time to an organization we believe makes a difference. IEEE Canada is the Canadian national society in electrical, electronics, and computer engineering. We are part of two larger organizations, one international, the other Canadian. Please use this link to learn more about IEEE Canada and our products and services.

What do we as volunteers receive in return? Here are some of the benefits:

  • Satisfaction from being useful and contributing to our profession and society.
  • Working and socializing with interesting and caring professionals.
  • Developing or honing networking and management skills.
  • Making personal contacts with leaders and those on the rise in our industry.
