On behalf of the OSPE board of directors and staff, we are deeply saddened by the news of the sudden passing of Irene Sterian on Sunday, May 8, 2022. Building a rewarding engineering career over the past 30+ years provided Irene with professional growth and inspiring career opportunities to solve industry challenges. She was passionate about mentoring and sharing the benefit of this profession and was a proud OSPE member since 2011. She also received an Ontario Professional Engineers Awards Medal for Management in 2019. In 2014, Irene founded REMAP, a $50 million not-for-profit organization formed to strengthen Canada’s manufacturing ecosystem. At REMAP, she leveraged the strengths and synergies of Canada’s public and private stakeholders to build robust supply chains and bring new technologies to market, faster. Irene graduated from the University of Toronto with a degree in Industrial Engineering.
Irene was a talented engineer and dynamic leader, a very kind and compassionate person, who will be sorely missed by everyone who was lucky enough to know her. Our hearts go out to the Sterian family.
