Ontario Professional Engineers Foundation for Education

Benevolent Fund

The Professional Engineers Benevolent Fund was established under the Ontario Professional Engineers Foundation for Education in 1986 as a result of a bequest earmarked to provide a fund for professional engineers experiencing financial hardship. The Benevolent Fund provides temporary financial assistance to applicants and their families in extenuating circumstances.

Professional engineers who have been licensed by Professional Engineers Ontario for at least one year are eligible to apply to the Benevolent Fund.

Assistance is available through the Benevolent Fund for the following:

  • rehabilitation following mental or physical disability
  • retraining (for example, following redundancy or obsolescence)
  • compassionate circumstances requiring immediate and urgent assistance
  • unemployment during an unusually prolonged job search
  • enterprising individuals suffering financial hardship arising from unfortunate business or economic circumstances

The Benevolent Fund does not provide an ongoing income supplement.
