CSChE Board of Directors and Officers

VISION: Solutions for a better world.


To advance the chemical engineering profession and the careers of its practitioners by:

  • facilitating the exchange of knowledge; 
  • enabling lifelong learning; 
  • promoting STEM education; 
  • advocating ethical and responsible practices.

The Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering (CSChE) is a national, not-for-profit, professional association that unites chemical engineering students and professionals who work in industry, academia and government.

The CSChE is one of the two Constituent Societies of the Chemical Institute of Canada (CIC), along with the Canadian Society for Chemistry (CSC). We are governed and funded by our membership.

Become a member of the CSChE

As well as enjoying several benefits such as discounted rates for our conferences, members of the CSChE become part of Canada’s diverse and prestigious community of chemical scientists, engineers and technologists.

CSChE Activities
