This section of the Iron Ring website is dedicated specifically to Camp 2 of Montreal.

To contact other Camps in Canada, please use the website : www.ironring.ca 

 

Q: Who can attend the Iron Ring Ceremony as a guest?

At McGill University and Concordia: Due to the nature of the ceremony and the space limitations of the room, only Obligated Engineers with an iron ring and three years industry experience may attend the Ceremony as sponsor. Family members may not attend, unless they are obligated engineers, and are wearing their iron ring at the day of the ceremony. Only one guest per attendee is permitted due to space limitations.

Other Universities / Schools: Guests (Relatives, spouses, friends, professors), and sponsors may attend the Ceremony. The number of guests is determined by the number of free places in the room; check with the University / School representative to obtain that information (see contact section)

 

Q: Where are the ceremonies held?

Ceremonies are held in different places ceremony after ceremony. Consult the actualities board  for the dates and the University / School representative for the place.

 

Q: I've lost my iron ring. What is the process to get it replaced?

Please complete the online Iron Ring Replacement Form.. You will be able to print a copy for your records. If your ring is still perfectly intact and you had it for less than 30 days, it will be replaced free of charge. Otherwise, the payment in the amount of 25,00 $ CAD is now done with the on-line payment through Paypal services. You can also obtain a copy of your obligation certificate.

Do not forget to indicate the new ring size. Please be aware that no replacement will be made prior to receiving payment. If living in the Montreal area, it is also possible to pick up your ring in person at the office of Camp 2 or at one of our locations listed under contacts. If you prefer this option, make sure you fill the form, print it, and bring it with you along with a copy of your obligation certificate and proper identification.

Q: I'm not sure I have my original Obligation Certificate. Will the small  oath card, my Professional Engineer membership, or a copy of my degree suffice?

No. The Obligation Certificate would have been granted to you after the ceremony, and will be an approximate size of 8.5 x 11 and titled "The Ritual of the Calling of An Engineer". It will be signed by the Camp Secretary, yourself, and will hold your unique Obligation Number. If you have lost your Certificate and would like to have it replaced, please contact your Camp. Only your original Camp can replace your Obligation Certificate. This Obligation Number is required as proof that you attended the ceremony, therefore, the oath card, the PE membership, or a copy of your degree cannot apply to the replacement of your iron ring.

 

Q: Can I replace someone's Iron Ring for them as a surprise?

No. Only an obligated Engineer may replace his/her own ring.

 

Q: Can I send someone to pick up my Iron Ring?

We generally discourage people from doing so. However, if you fill out the iron ring replacement form, and provide us with a formal letter, indicating the name of the person who will be picking up your ring, your ring will be replaced for you at one of the locations specified in the contacts section.

 

Q: How do I exchange my ring?

There is no charge to exchange an iron ring if it's in good condition and it's done within one (1) month of an Obligation Ceremony. Complete and submit the Iron Ring Replacement Form at the appropriate location (see contacts section). After that delay, or if damaged, you must pay 25,00 $ CAD for a new iron ring.

 

Q: I would like to exchange my ring, but I want to keep my old ring. Can I do that?

The camp does not allow obligated engineers to own more than one ring. If you would like to exchange your ring, you must relinquish the one that you have.

 

Q: I don't know my size, do you have it on record?

We do not have the ring size from each year on record, and we do not rely on the ones we have, as ring sizes can change frequently. By meeting one of the representative contact listed in the contacts section, we can size your finger right away. Otherwise, please go to a jewellery store and ask them to size your finger (there should not be a charge).
