As Ontario’s engineering regulator, PEO relies heavily on its volunteers. More than 700 professional engineers, engineering interns and non-engineers volunteer their time each year on behalf of the regulator through their participation.

Important changes coming to PEO’s Engineering Intern (EIT) program

The EIT program will no longer be offered to new applicants as of May 15, 2023. Since the required engineering work experience under the new licensing process must be acquired before applying, the EIT program—which was designed to assist applicants as they acquired work experience—is no longer sustainable in its current form.

We are pleased to continue to support current P.Eng. applicants enrolled in the EIT program. Current EITs may remain in the program as long as they continue their current licensing process.

We understand the value the EIT designation holds for prospective applicants, as well as engineering employers and local chapters. As such, PEO will consult with our stakeholders to determine other options for prospective applicants seeking to gain experience.

Please continue to monitor this webpage and the FARPACTA webpage for more information as it becomes available.
