Association of Romanian Engineers in Canada (AREC)
In 2003, a small number of engineers began meeting on a monthly basis in order to create a network where engineers educated in Romania could be brought together. The purpose was: to help each other succeed in our careers, by understanding cultural differences, building a better name for ourselves and our community in Canada, where we were welcomed with open arms.
Our vision has three key components:
To promote the common interests of the engineers educated in Romania and living now in Canada
Helping engineers educated in Romania with advice towards PEO licence and employment
Effective Networking takes many forms, but for us, this is:
creating opportunities for AREC members to effectively communicate among themselves(networking)
better communications of the benefits and value of being an AREC member to current members and potential members
AREC is a network of people; a platform for contacts between students, engineers, industry and society. The network gives support to students and engineers, opening borders and minds. It aims at helping to understand cultural differences and at developing one's personal and professional skills. Our goal is to make positive changes in our lives and to support each other through those changes.
