Pedro Sena represented IBW well, as he was invited to present at Ryerson University on November 26, 2018.

On November 14, 2018 we had the privilege to welcome seven Grade 9’s to have a taste of what goes on at IBW Surveyors.
The students were taking part in ‘Take your Student to Work Day’ an initiative that allows them to have a first hand look at the working world.
It was a chilly day, but they braved the cold and spent the morning in the field, finding bars and assisting one of our Party Chiefs.
Upon their return and a scrumptious lunch, they were able to see first hand the technical capabilities we have at IBW.
From Scanning to GIS, and a few games in between, it was a pleasure to host a great group and IBW looks forward to this event every year.
