Engineer in Training Program

“The EIT program allowed me to explore different opportunities in the organization and find a permanent position that I really love. During my EIT rotations I worked on a variety of projects throughout the organization. I designed a 60” steel water main, worked on improving water quality, trouble shot the filter-aid polymer delivery system for commissioning of the Seymour Capilano Water Filtration Plant, as well as many other interesting smaller projects. I now work in the Solid Waste Planning Division and do technical research for policies such as Metro Vancouver’s recent Organics Disposal Ban. It feels really good to go to work knowing that every day I am part of a team that creates positive change for now and the future for where we live, work and play.”
