Marg Latham, Chair

Marg Latham

In 1974, Marg Latham was the only woman to graduate in civil engineering from Queen’s University. Since then, she has continued to be a pioneer and trailblazer. To this day, she is one of few women in Canada to have been a construction superintendent.

Over the first 20 years of her career, Latham managed major construction projects in Toronto, Winnipeg and Vancouver and later became the first female vice president in UMA Group, a national consulting engineering firm. Today, in her own business she is assisting major public and private sector engineering and geoscience organizations and regulators in improving professional practice. 

Latham has been a champion for women in SETT since the 1970s, has been on the WinSETT Board since 2012 and has led the board after both the death of founding chair Margaret-Ann Armour and through the pandemic.

Outside of work, Latham spends her summers sailing and being on the water with her spouse of 34 years. She is also an avid walker and enjoys downhill skiing in the winter.
