About the Presenter: Christian Bellini, P. Eng., FEC
Christian Bellini began his engineering career in Christian Bellini1995 at a small structural engineering firm called Blackwell. Today, he is a principal at the same firm, now with a staff of around 60 with offices in Toronto, Waterloo, Victoria and Halifax and an international portfolio of projects. A key characteristic of the firm is a high level of engineering engagement at all levels, allowing him to carry out engineering design on a daily basis in addition to his administrative duties.

His volunteer career at PEO began in 2005, when he joined the Experience Requirements Committee, serving in later years as vice chair and chair. Over the years he has served on (and in some cases chaired) many of PEO’s regulatory committees and task forces. From 2018-2021 he served on the Board of directors of Engineers Canada, as well as on Engineers Canada’s Canadian Engineering Qualifications Board and Finance Audit and Risk Committee. He has contributed to various Engineers Canada initiatives, including competency-based experience assessment, the Canadian Framework for Licensure.

From 2018-2021 he served as vice chair of PEO’s 30 x 30 Task Force, whose mandate relates to the Engineers Canada initiative to see 30 per cent of newly licensed engineers be female by 2030. On an academic front, Bellini has taught structures courses at the University of Waterloo and Laurentian University. He is also frequently invited as a guest critic at Architecture Studio Reviews at University of Toronto, Ryerson University and Dalhousie University.

Synopsis: Over the last few years, PEO has been pursuing a strategy for enterprise wide transformation. This change has been taking place on 3 primary fronts: Governance, Operations and our Organisational Framework. This talk will give an overview where we are at and where we are going, with an emphasis on the governance work which is scheduled to be completed at the end of this Council Year.
