Community Involvement

Canadian Literacy Program

2016 – REMISZ sent out holiday cards produced by the Printing House. The cards were custom designed by local artists and all proceeds go directly to charity. This year, proceeds were donated to the Canadian Literacy Program.

 

Ottawa Community Housing Foundation

2016 – REMISZ Consulting has donated a holiday gift basket to the foundation which will be auctioned off; all proceeds will go to the Foundation’s charity.

 

Environmental Initiatives

The staff at REMISZ strive to do our part in conserving the environment in any way possible. This year we were able to save a total of 6 trees through recycling services provided by Shred-It.

 

Local communities and Acadmia work

Our staff actively engages in the local communities, and in academia: During 2018 and 2019, senior engineers mentored students from the University of Ottawa and Carleton University for their capstone projects. One of the groups that we mentored even won the highest award for their project on “The Rehabilitation of the prince of Whales Bridge Ottawa-Gatineau” which was the best amongst 19 other Canadian Universities. The award was recieved in Montreal in June 2019 during the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering conference.

One of our senior engineers was also invited by both Carleton University and the University of Ottawa to give guest lectures on civil/structural engineering practices and challenges.

We also have helped US film producers in making a documentary film “Bridging Urban America” about the largest bridge projects in America and that included a segment about the famous Quebec Bridge’s legendary collapse and how it created the Iron Ring ceremony for engineers. Our role on the documentary was to source historical information, arrange for interviews, translate French and Polish sections, and overall technical consultations on bridge building terminology and history.

We have helped support the Association of Polish Engineers in Canada in their various activities for many years, and also by mentoring several young international professionals in getting their Canadian experience so they could become fully licensed with PEO.

In recognition of his community work, our founder, Mr. Wojciech Remisz, recieved a 10-year Ontario Volunteer Award.
