Congratulations to all graduates! This first requirement is one you've already accomplished (or are close to finishing), and that's the successful completion of an undergraduate engineering degree.

If you’ve graduated from a program accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) all you need to do is show proof of your completed degree to meet the academic knowledge requirements for licensure!

The purpose of accreditation is to identify to engineering regulators those engineering programs whose graduates are academically qualified to begin the process to be licensed as professional engineers in Canada. The process of accreditation emphasizes the quality of the students, the academic and support staff, the curriculum, and the educational facilities.

For those who graduated from a non-CEAB accredited program—in Canada or elsewhere in the world—a regulator will assess your academic qualifications and determine whether you are eligible to apply and if additional tests may be required. Engineers Canada is signatory to several professional engineering agreements which facilitate mobility for international applicants. Each Canadian engineering regulator determines how these agreements are implemented, but they can facilitate licensure in Canada. When you apply for licensure the regulator will provide more information on what the next steps will be for you.
