Nominations may be made in either the professional (the Gold Medal, the Engineering Medal and the Award for Engineering Project or Achievement) or civic division (the Citizenship Award). To be considered within the professional division, nominations must indicate a significant level of engineering content. Civic division awards are made to recognize the achievements of professional engineers in fields other than engineering.

The Awards Committee may move a nomination from one division or category to another, if it considers this to be more appropriate than the original submission.

The Ontario Professional Engineers Awards are presented annually. The nomination deadline is 11:59 p.m. ET on Wednesday, February 22, 2023.
