As the regulator of engineering in Ontario, it’s PEO’s role to assure the public that licensed practitioners are competent to practise in their chosen discipline, and that they are taking responsibility for the outcomes of their work.
PEO protects and serves the public by ensuring all licensed professional engineers are qualified – and by licensing all who qualify.
P.Eng. transfers from another Canadian engineering regulator
Applicants who are licensed as professional engineers in good standing with another Canadian engineering regulator/ordre should apply by completing the professional engineer (P.Eng.) licence application.
Certificate of Authorization
In Ontario, professional engineers who provide engineering services directly to the public must have a PEO Certificate of Authorization (C of A).
A limited licence is issued to an individual who, as a result of at least eight years of specialized experience, has developed competence in a certain area of professional engineering.
