Ontario professional engineers are part of a community of more than 87,500 PEO licence and certificate holders committed to enhancing the quality of life, safety and well-being in the province.

PEO’s PEAK program will support licence holders to maintain their skills, competence and professionalism through continuing professional development.

PEO's mandate, as described in the Professional Engineers Act, is to ensure that the public is protected and that individuals and companies providing engineering services uphold a strict code of professional ethics and conduct.

PEO licence holders and EITs can visit the profile section of the Member Portal to review and update, if necessary, the directory information.

The PEO Licensure Assistance Program (LAP) gives the opportunity for experienced licensed professionals to transfer their skills and knowledge to aspiring EITs pursuing their engineering licence.
