NOTICE to candidates registered for Ritual of the Calling of an Engineer on March 24. 2020

The Wardens of Camp 8 continue to monitor the rapidly evolving situation of COVID-19 in our community. Our top priorities are the health and safety of the participants in our Obligation Ceremony and ensuring that we responsibly protect our local community. As such we are postponing the Obligation Ceremony that was scheduled for March 24, 2020. An alternative ceremony will be scheduled for the Fall 2020 or Spring 2021 and Candidates will be informed of any updates when they become available.

The Ritual of the Calling of an Engineer is a unique and meaningful experience for all new engineers and we share your disappointment in this situation. That said, our priority is to protect the health and safety of all participants and the local community. Your understanding in this matter is greatly appreciated.

Ring Presenters

Experienced Engineers will be presenting you with your ring. You can choose to have a specific Engineer present your ring to you. All Ring Presenters must be Obligated Canadian Engineers (no exceptions). Ring presentors must have a minimum of 4 years of engineering work experience.  We require the camp number in which their obligation took place. Winnipeg’s camp is 8, and you can find a list of other camps on the Iron Ring website.

Ring Presenters do not require a guest ticket. The candidate has the option of providing their Ring Presenter with a guest ticket, or the presenter can pay the admission fee of $15 at the time of the ceremony.

Candidates can invite a maximum of three guests to the ceremony. Guest tickets are $15 each and must be purchased at the Sizing Session. Guest tickets are not available at the door.  Guests must be seated by 7:45 pm on the evening of the ceremony.
