The Stakeholder Relations department works with elected and department officials at the municipal, provincial and federal levels of government to advocate and lobby issues on behalf of ASET.
The Director builds relationships with business and industrial associations whose issues align with ASET members.
Current initiatives include raising awareness of ASET with municipalities, amending provincial codes and standards to include the professional technologists legal right to practice engineering independently within a scope of practice. A longer term project is the Legislative Review of the Engineering and Geoscience Professions Act, which is shared with APEGA.
