Reduced fee policy (Fee remission)

To qualify for fee remission, members must complete the remission declaration form and send it to PEO's Financial Services department before paying their dues. Licence holders can email the completed form to [email protected]. We'll contact you once we've reviewed and approved your remission request.

Alternatively, you may choose to mail the completed form with the reduced fee payment to:

Professional Engineers Ontario
c/o PEO Financial Services
40 Sheppard Avenue West, Suite 101
Toronto, ON M2N 6K9

The Registrar may request supporting documentation related to your submission. 

Fee remission conditions

Licence holders on fee remission must not practise professional engineering but they can self-identify as licence holders and continue to use the title associated with their licence. To be eligible to practise engineering again, you must exit fee remission and pay all applicable fees. You must complete all PEAK mandatory CPD requirements as a practising licence holder starting the next calendar year after resuming engineering practice.

PEAK (mandatory CPD) exemption for fee remission licence holders

From 2024, professional engineers and limited licence holders enrolled in PEO’s fee remission program are exempt from the annual PEAK continuing professional development (CPD) requirement.

Existing retired members on reduced fees do not need to submit the Remission Declaration Form.

  4. Unemployed - Any licence holder who is unemployed from the practice of engineering and has no income.
