About CIMarE

The Canadian Institute of Marine Engineering (CIMarE) was incorporated by federal charter in 1976 to advance and promote the science and practice of marine engineering, naval engineering, naval architecture, ocean engineering, marine electrics/electronics, control engineering and other associated professions.


Membership in the CIMarE allows marine engineers, and others involved in Canada's marine industry, to meet, correspond and exchange information and ideas. Our seven local Branches offer technical meetings as well as various social events.

We also promote communications through our publications and our website; both of which are undergoing upgrades to better serve our members.


Each year, one of our Branches hosts Mari-Tech, a national conference and technical exposition. New research papers are presented, key note speakers address the current issues and panel discussions promote lively debates. There is also a large exhibit hall where companies supporting the marine field can display their products.


The Institute is a learned society that speaks as a body on behalf of all those working in Canada's marine engineering field. We strive to have representatives on government committees at every level in order to promote the interests of our members in decision making and policy creation that affects our profession.


The CIMarE co-operates with the education establishments that are training the next generation of marine engineers. We offer a greatly discounted membership rate for students as well as scholarships for deserving candidates.

We welcome your interest and hope that you will join us in advancing and promoting the science and practice of engineering in Canada's marine field. If you wish to become a member, please click here.
