Application Requirements

Academic requirement

The academic requirement to apply for a P.Eng. licence will be a bachelor’s degree in an engineering program that is accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) or a bachelor's degree that meets PEO's acceptance criteria plus successful completion of a technical examination program.

Candidates who graduated outside of Canada and the USA will need to request World Education Services (WES) to send the course-by-course report for each program as the required academic document to apply for academic requirements

Experience requirement

All applicants are required to obtain a minimum of 48 months of acceptable, verifiable professional engineering experience. At time of application, all applicants (including both Canadian and international applicants) will now be required to meet the experience requirement through a competency-based assessment (CBA) model. CBA is a tool to assess readiness for licensure that examines engineering competencies across several categories (technical, communication, project management, professional accountability, etc.) in which all professional engineers must be competent to support effective practice and public safety.


In general, PEO accepts government-issued ID.
