Who can complete the C of A Renewal?
Currently only the contact licence holder on record (a professional engineer, (P.Eng.) limited licence holder (LET, LEL) or temporary licence holder) can assume this responsibility.
How do I change the contact licence holder of the C of A?
To change the contact licence holder, send an email to CofAR@peo.on.ca. A certificate of authorization representative will contact you to make the necessary change.

Renewal Process and Communications
- 60 days before your C of A renewal expiration, an email notification is sent to your contact licence holder directing them to go online and complete the renewal application
- If the application and payment are not received by the expiration date, the day after expiration a default email notice is sent to the company’s email address on record
