What is Congress?
CFES Congress is an annual, bi-lingual, student-run conference. It provides a
platform from which students can collaborate with and learn from our industry
partners, sponsors, and fellow students. The national transfer of knowledge is
invaluable, as it provides students with tangible real-life examples and advice
on how to improve their personal and professional skills, their engineering
societies, and their Faculty as a whole. In 2020, Congress will be hosted in
downtown Edmonton, Alberta.
Standing as the capital of Alberta, Edmonton is a cultural, governmental and educational centre. Edmonton is on the North Saskatchewan River and it is the northernmost city in North America with a metropolitan population of over one million. It is home to North America’s largest mall, West Edmonton Mall (the world’s largest mall from 1981 until 2004), and Fort Edmonton Park, Canada’s largest living history museum.
