This paper presents a detailed examination of a specific case study in engineering ethics in Ontario, Canada. The writer discusses that in the case, one company (both of which will remain anonymous) alleged that another was distributing advertising brochures that made claims of engineering abilities and capabilities known to be false in violation of the Code of Ethics. The process for determining the nature of the ethical violation is the focus of this paper.

From the Paper:

"Engineering, in all its many incarnations, is one of the most creative and potentially constructive applications of human ingenuity possible. Engineers build bridges. They design homes, airplanes, and spacecraft. Engineers probe the inner workings of the biological world and design more innovative computational systems. In short, engineers are the individuals upon whom much of society depends; they take ideas and turn them into practical applications, creating and constructing all of the physical elements of society that we too often take for granted. In Canada the importance of engineers is understood and rigorously enforced. In neighboring United States, engineers are favored but are not controlled or taught how to control themselves. Engineering ethics - dealing with issues like safety, liability, and integrity - is considered optional. This is not the case in Canada."
