Society of Fire Protection Engineers,
Southern Ontario Chapter
The Southern Ontario Chapter of the Society of Fire Protection Engineers was established on November 14, 1965, with the purpose of advancing the art and science of fire protection engineering and its allied fields, for reducing life and property losses from fire, and maintaining high ethical standards amongst its members. Operating as a not-for-profit organization, the chapter strives to facilitate sharing of sound engineering experiences and knowledge with its 500 plus members, the fire protection community, and with public by providing technical and networking sessions. The chapter is grateful for the opportunity to give back to charities, including the Sick Kids Burn Clinic, the SFPE Foundation, and through our own Thomas Chiang Scholarship for students excelling in a fire protection program.
