Ontario Society of Professional Engineers
The Ontario Society of Professional Engineers (OSPE) is the voice of the engineering profession in Ontario. We represent the entire engineering community, including licensed and unlicensed professionals, graduates, and students who work or will work in several of the most strategic sectors of Ontario’s economy. OSPE elevates the profile of the profession by advocating with governments, offering valued member services and providing opportunities for ongoing learning, networking and community building. OSPE was formed in 2000 after members of Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO) voted to separate regulatory and advocacy functions into two distinct organizations.
Hydro One delivers electricity safely, reliably and responsibly to homes and businesses across the province of Ontario and owns and operates Ontario’s 29,000 km high-voltage transmission network that delivers electricity to large industrial customers and municipal utilities, and a 122,000 km low-voltage distribution system that serves about 1.3 million end-use customers and smaller municipal utilities in the province.

The CCPV Advantage
There’s no other facility like the CCPV in Canada. With a 25,000 square foot centre, housing leading-edge validation technologies and equipment, we’re able to offer prototyping and testing in one central location – with full developmental multi-modal capabilities under one roof for cost-effective results.
Our comprehensive suite of electrical, mechanical, environmental, thermal, and performance tests provide a truly multi-modal testing facility with integration across several functional areas…and it does so with a developmental focus. Not only will your product receive a “pass” or “fail” outcome, we work with you to determine the root cause of a test failure, detail under what conditions the product failed, and then develop solutions to ensure product success. With CCPV, you’ll streamline your processes, reduce risk, and get your product to market faster with increased confidence.
• Third party validation and benchmarking studies.
• Multi-modal testing to reflect actual or potential conditions of product application.
• Identification of product strengths and weaknesses.
• Enabling economically viable solutions.
• Secure client hoteling stations to protect documents and test samples.
• Access to federal and provincial research funding programs/grants.
