PEO and COVID-19
In light of concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and the need for social distancing, PEO is no longer directly accepting incoming mail deliveries. Deliveries are being received and securely held onsite by PEO’s property manager.
We have updated our P.Eng. application form and modified processes so that applications can be submitted to PEO by email during the COVID-19 pandemic. To apply for a P.Eng. licence, please download and complete the new application form, attach copies of all required documents, and send it to us at email@example.com.
Members and applicants are advised not to mail cheques to PEO until further notice. Payment of fees and dues, as well as payments for renewals of certificates of authorization, can be made online. All fees and dues continue to be payable.
PEO staff remain available to respond by phone and email to all inquiries, including those related to the application process.
Please check our website regularly for further updates: https://www.peo.on.ca/latest-news/peo-covid-19
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. Transfer From Another Province
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.
