The First Year Integration Conference is intended to help integrate engineering students into their first year of university. The Conference is entirely organized and run by engineering students and is attended by over 100 first years from 16 universities across Ontario. 


This year, we are pleased to announce that the theme of this conference will be "For the Future". Throughout the conference, delegates will be exposed to a variety of activities, workshops, and sessions that will encourage them to start thinking about the future. This will include discussions about our responsibility as engineers to the environment, our communities, and our professional development.


FYIC presented by OSPE will take place between November 26th – November 28th 2021 starting Friday evening and ending Sunday afternoon. Students will have the opportunity to get to know delegates from other schools, engage in various activities and games, and ask questions through the FYIC Channel on the ESSCO Discord. 

What is OPSE?

The Ontario Society of Professional Engineers (OSPE) is the voice of the engineering profession in Ontario. They represent the entire engineering community, including professional engineers, engineering graduates and students who work or will work in several of the most strategic sectors of Ontario’s economy.


OSPE elevates the profile of the profession by advocating with governments, offering valued member services and providing opportunities for ongoing learning, networking and community building.

FYIC Presented by OSPE

Goes Virtual!

This year FYIC will be hosted online to promote the inclusion of all schools and to ensure that everyone feels safe and comfortable attending the conference. This means it's easier than ever to attend FYIC and we hope this inspires you to apply to represent your school!


Even though the conference will be hosted online, every delegate will still be receiving some awesome FYIC merch. We'll also have many great interactive sessions, social activities, and even food options available for our delegates. We hope that you're just as excited about it as we are and we look forward to seeing you at FYIC 2021!


Delegate Perks

This year’s merchandise includes a black t-shirt, a cotton tote bag, crew cotton sport socks, stickers, and embroidered patches. All pieces this year are custom made to print, featuring this year’s conference theme logo. As the conference is held online this year due to COVID-19 safety precautions, all merchandise will be shipped directly to the conference delegates.


Virtual conferences are tiring! To keep our delegates engaged throughout the weekend, everyone will be provided with two $20 gift certificates for food over the course of the weekend.
