It is with great pleasure that I join CIMA+’s Board of Directors. It is a team of professionals who innovate in their area, and focus on the development of sustainable communities.

Gina Cody

Independent Director

An engineering pioneer in Canada

Gina Cody has been a consulting engineering entrepreneur for the past 30 years. She immigrated to Canada from Iran in 1979 to pursue a master’s degree in building engineering at Concordia University, where she later became the first woman awarded a PhD in building engineering. Today the Concordia University Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science is named after her. In 2019, she received the Fellowship Award from the Canadian Academy of Engineers and was inducted to the Order of Montreal. In 2020, she became a member of the Order of Canada, and was named one of the Top 25 Women of Influence in Canada. 

 A committed engineer 

In addition to being an award-winning engineer, she is a committed professional. She has been sitting on several boards of directors and committees since 1984, namely at Concordia University, on which board she still sits, and co-chairs the Campaign for Concordia, the most ambitious fundraising initiative to date.  

 Her experience and business savvy will help CIMA+ achieve its growth objectives across Canada.
