Dear Students,
 
In this issue, the OIQ kicks off a series of videos that will help you better understand how we carry out our mission of protecting the public every day.
 
Released this month, the first video discusses our Unlawful Practice Supervision Department. This department’s team mainly works to prevent violations of the Engineers Act that could put the public at risk. This public protection mechanism applies to acts that are performed by people who are not OIQ members.
