WHAT IS ESSCO?
ESSCO is an association that represents engineering societies from 16 universities across Ontario, and acts as the link between engineering students and professional associations, academia, and government.
Since its creation in 1987, ESSCO’s goal has been to promote unity, continuity, and visibility among Ontario engineering students.
To facilitate centralized communication and information exchange between member engineering student societies, assist them in increasing their value to the common student.
To promote and assist other organizations in promoting engineering as an exciting, challenging, and equitable profession, especially to high school and elementary school students.
To represent undergraduate engineering students in the province of Ontario in matters of common interest, and communicate with professional associations, academia, industry and government on behalf of member schools, but never to:
Align with partisan organizations; or
Become involved in issues not directly related to engineering education and practice;
We acknowledge that we live, work, and learn on the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. We also acknowledge that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 with the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land was acquired unfairly, and as settlers on this land it is part of our collective responsibility to recognize and mitigate the oppression of Indigenous peoples.
