We appreciate your patience over the past months and continue to work towards ensuring you all will be able to take the Obligation and receive your rings before year’s end as part of the Ritual of the Calling of an Engineer. 
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.
