To get your licence as an engineer in Canada, you’ll need to meet five requirements.
To be a licensed engineer in Canada, you must be licensed by one of Canada’s provincial or territorial engineering regulators. However, you can still work in engineering—even if you haven’t been licensed by a regulator—as long as you are supervised by a licensed engineer, who takes professional responsibility for your work.
To practise engineering in Canada, you must be licensed with the engineering regulator for the province or territory where you want to practise. One of the five requirements for licensure is an education in engineering.
In Canada engineers are recognized by employers, peers, and society alike for their character, ethics, and quality of work. Engineering is a highly respected and in-demand profession in Canada, offering the opportunity to improve lives, lead innovation, and enjoy a meaningful and prosperous career.
