Manitoba Immigration Council.
CSAE Fellow M. G. (Ron) Britton, P.Eng., has been appointed to the
Manitoba Immigration Council. The 12-member council advises the Minister
of Labour and Immigration in Manitoba on issues associated with
immigration. This appointment grew out of work associated with the
Internationally-Educated Engineers Qualification Program in which the
faculty of engineering at the University of Manitoba works with the
Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Manitoba to
assist foreign trained engineers in gaining academic recognition as they
work toward their professional engineers license.
Britton is associate dean for design education and a professor in
the Biosystems Engineering and Civil Engineering Departments at the
University of Manitoba. He is a 39-year member of ASAE.
