Alberta’s Darrel Danyluk, P.Eng., FCSCE, has been elected president of the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers for 2004-2005. During his term, Mr. Danyluk will lead CCPE, the national organization of the 12 provincial and territorial associations/ordre that regulate the practice of engineering in Canada and license the country's more than 160,000 professional engineers.

Mr. Danyluk has served on APEGGA’s executive committee as both chair and president. During his term as president, he initiated mutual recognition discussions to facilitate the mobility of engineers across North America.

As a member on the board of the Association of Consulting Engineers of Canada, Mr. Danyluk chaired a national steering committee to determine the human resource needs of the Canadian consulting engineering industry. He also contributed to the consulting industry as a member of the board of directors of the Consulting Engineers of Alberta, and served as its president in 1991.

As a representative for APEGGA on the CCPE board, Mr. Danyluk has been active in chairing a national steering committee for the From Consideration to Integration project. The project is aimed at improving the processes for international engineering graduates to obtain their engineering licenses without compromising public safety or lowering professional standards, and also to help them find meaningful engineering employment.

Professionally, Mr. Danyluk began his career with Reid Crowther, a large international engineering consulting company. He quickly advanced from the position of project engineer to the company’s chief operating officer and chairman of the board.

In 2001, he joined the department of civil engineering at the University of Calgary as a Distinguished Industrial Visitor and has become the first executive director of the Calgary Centre of Innovative Technology.

Mr. Danyluk is joined on CCPE's executive committee by: Colin E. Smith, P.Eng., president-elect, from the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of British Columbia; Gordon Sterling, P.Eng., past-president from, Professional Engineers Ontario; Chantal Guay, ing., from l’Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec; and Bruce Wornell, P.Eng., from the Association of Professional Engineers of Nova Scotia.

Mr. Danyluk and the board members will be supported by CCPE Chief Executive Officer Marie Lemay, P.Eng., and her staff in the Ottawa office.

Established in 1936, CCPE delivers national programs that ensure the highest standards of engineering education, professional qualifications and ethical conduct. CCPE is the voice of its constituent members in national and international affairs, and promotes greater understanding of the nature, role and contribution of engineering to society.
