We are the Toronto
based section of the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America,
a not-for-profit organization dedicated to all aspects of the ART and
SCIENCE of ILLUMINATION. IESNA has set the geographic boundaries of
Toronto Section to include everything from SW Ontario to as far east as
and including Kingston and north and west from Kingston to include all
of Northern Ontario to Thunder Bay.
The IESNA is the recognized
technical authority on illumination. For over a century its objective
has been to communicate information on all aspects of good lighting
practice to its members, to the lighting community, and to consumers
through a variety of programs, publications and services. The strength
of the IESNA is its diversified membership consisting of: engineers,
architects, designers, educators, students, contractors, distributors,
utility personnel, manufacturers, and scientists, all contributing to
the mission of the society: to advance knowledge and disseminate
information of the improvement of the lighted environment to the
benefit of society.
The IESNA is a forum for the exchange of
ideas and information and a vehicle for its members professional
development and recognition. Through its committees, with hundreds of
qualified members from the lighting and user communities, the IESNA
correlates research, investigations, and discussions to guide lighting
experts and laypersons via consensus-based lighting recommendations.
