Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Engineering traditions in Canada are diverse. Many of the traditions are practiced at the engineering departments of Canadian universities, where student organisations continue to practice traditions started by other engineers in previous years. Haultain wrote to Rudyard Kipling, who had made reference to the work of engineers in some of his poems and writings. He asked Kipling for his assistance in developing a suitably dignified obligation and ceremony for its undertaking. Kipling was very enthusiastic in his response and shortly produced both an obligation and a ceremony formally entitled "The Ritual of the Calling of an Engineer." Kipling had long been the literary hero of engineers, having published the poem "The Sons of Martha" in 1907. In the poem, Kipling identifies engineers with Martha and her children, who continue to do the chores necessary to keep the household running rather than sit at the Lord's feet.
