The CSME is a constituent society of the Engineering Institute of Canada. As such, its regular members automatically qualify for EIC awards consideration. The EIC annually runs an awards nomination process that is similar to CSME's: nominations must be submitted by peers (not self) with the endorsement of supporters. The deadline for EIC nominations is 15 November for awards to be presented at the subsequent year's Gala.

About the EIC …
Founded by Royal Charter in Montreal in 1887 as the Canadian Society of Civil Engineers with the mandate to disseminate technical information and experience, the society was renamed by Parliament in April 1918 as the Engineering Institute of Canada. In its first century, the EIC functioned as a learned society with members from various engineering disciplines. It is now a federation of twelve technical societies representing the main engineering disciplines and whose mandates remain the dissemination of technical knowledge and experience and the maintenance of high standards for engineering practice in Canada.
