Iron Ring

The Iron Ring may be worn on the little finger of the working hand by any engineer who has been obligated at an authorized ceremony of the Ritual of the Calling of the Engineer. The ring symbolizes the pride that engineers have in their profession, while simultaneously reminding them of their humility. The ring serves as a reminder to the engineer and others of the engineer’s obligation to live by a high standard of professional conduct.

You must attend The Ritual of the Calling of the Engineer Obligation Ceremony in order to receive an Iron Ring.

Need to replace a lost ring? 

Complete the form on the Camp One Iron Ring website. Be sure to visit your local jewellery store to determine the correct ring size. Ring replacement costs $30. Applicants 80 years of age or older may replace a lost ring at no charge, by calling Jane Ross at 416-946-3281.

Apply to take the obligation

If you graduated from an engineering program outside of Canada, or did not attend a ceremony at the time of your graduation from an accredited engineering program in Canada, you must attend an Obligation Ceremony as a “senior” candidate. In order to be invited to a ceremony, an application must be submitted together with payment between April 1 and June 30. Candidates will receive a response in August or September. The Senior Ceremony will be held in November.

Visit the Camp One Iron Ring website to apply.
