The Power of Recognition
| ite section profile
The Toronto Section of ITE, which covers most of central and northern Ontario, Canada, enjoys
a membership of more than 750 transportation professionals. The Section actively engages,
recognizes, and supports its membership, including young members. ITE Toronto works
closely with its four Student Chapters (University of Toronto, Ryerson University, Lakehead
University, and York University) by co-hosting events throughout the year. The Section also
offers monetary support to each Student Chapter to help cover the costs of hosting their own
events, and offers all students reduced admission costs to all Section activities.
Also in support of its student members, the Section collaborates annually with the
Section Awards
Understanding the value of recognition, ITE
Toronto offers several awards to express gratitude
for member and organizational contributions
to the Section and the profession. Annually,
ITE Toronto hosts the Project of the Year Award
competition, where members can nominate a
recently completed project with an abstract and
report for consideration. The winner is recognized
at the Christmas Luncheon and Annual General
Meeting, and gets to host the first event of the
following calendar year. The 2020 recipient was
the Kleinburg Parking Strategy, nominated by
City of Vaughan.
At its Christmas Luncheon and Annual General
meeting, the Section also presents an award
to the member who attended the most events
over the past calendar year to recognize their
dedication to ITE Toronto. Likewise, it presents
Lifetime Membership Awards to those who
have been members for more than 25 years, and
recognizes the Past President of the Section for
his or her contributions to the executive board.
The ITE Toronto Section President also personally
selects and presents an award to a member within
the Section to recognize his or her contributions
throughout the past year.
Hamilton and Southwestern Ontario Sections to host the Joint Canadian District of ITE (CITE)
Section Student Presentation Competition, a unique event to help foster interest in the field
of transportation. While technical competence is an important element, the primary focus of
the competition is on the ability to present effectively to one's peers and the public. For the
very first time, the 2021 competition was held online. Prizes were offered to the top three
presentations within the graduate and undergraduate categories.
ITE Toronto offers its membership a variety of events in different formats that engage
attendees on technical subjects while also providing the opportunity for networking. Prior to
COVID-19, those included:
*
Lectures - One to three speakers presenting on various topics, typically taking place on
a weekday morning or evening. Coffee and snacks provided
* Panels - Three to four panelists discussing elements of a single topic, each from a different
type of employer within the transportation industry (i.e., private sector, public sector,
academic, vendor, not-for-profit, advocacy, etc.) with a focus on discussion and Q&A.
Offered during early afternoon, lunch provided
* Workshops - Full day workshops on a technical aspect, lunch provided
*
Tours - Onsite tour of a facility, infrastructure or construction site
*
*
Socials - Casual speaking engagement followed by networking and occasionally an
activity. Often takes place after an evening lecture
Luncheons/Annual General Meeting - Combining many of the elements above,
consists of a networking session, a lunch, a keynote presentation, and raffles/drawings
During COVID, Toronto continued to offer online events in the form of webinars. Topics
included everything from Vision Zero to Transportation Equity. In addition, ITE Toronto has
collaborated with the Toronto Chapter of Young Professionals in Transportation (YPT) in
the past for a few events. As part of adapting to the virtual environment brought on by
the pandemic, the Section most recently
co-hosted a virtual TransportationCamp
" un-conference, " an informal conference run
by the attendees. Prior to the pandemic,
ITE Toronto was also planning to co-host
an event with the Toronto section of an
organization called Bike Minds, but it was
cancelled due to shutdowns. The Section
looks forward to exploring other collaborations
in the future.
