The Wardens of Camp 7 Halifax would like to congratulate again our most recent members who participated in the The Ritual of the Calling of an Engineer online ceremony Fall 2020.
The rings and certificates were placed in the mail with Canada Post in Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM) on Monday, December 7th, 2020. Some of you that live within HRM have received your rings already.
- For those living outside of HRM you should receive your ring package in the coming days.
- For those living outside of Canada, it will take longer for your ring package to reach you.
As always, we appreciate your patience.
If you provided us with an incorrect mailing address this Fall, and wish to update your address now, please contact us at email@example.com.
Our next annual Iron Ring ceremony will be Saturday, March 6, 2021 (2:30pm AST).
This will be an Online Event, registration information to follow.
The Ritual of the Calling of an Engineer has been a uniquely Canadian tradition for almost 100 years and is administered by The Corporation of the Seven Wardens Inc. The Obligation Ceremony where Iron Rings are presented to engineering graduates and other qualified obligants is held in every Canadian community where Engineering is taught, by one of 27 local ‘Camps’. More than 440,000 Engineers have been obligated in Canada. Iron Rings are worn by many Engineers in Canada, reminding those who wear it, and others, of their ethical obligation to live by a high standard of professional conduct in the service of the public. The Iron Ring is not a symbol of registration to practice as an Engineer in Canada. Qualification and registration to practice is the role and responsibility of the provincial and territorial licensing bodies.
