Canadian Framework for Licensure
The Canadian Framework for Licensure is a dynamic model for all Canadian engineering regulators to enhance their ability to regulate the practice of professional engineering to better serve and protect the public interest.
The Canadian Framework for Licensure will develop foundational documents to help engineering regulators across Canada improve their legislative framework to enhance equity, consistency, fairness and timeliness of services. These changes will result in enhanced national and international mobility through uniform qualifications recognition, admissions, and discipline and enforcement procedures.
The Canadian Framework for Licensure focuses on the essential elements of the regulated engineering profession in Canada (“the elements”) and develops key considerations and supporting implementation details for each one. These elements will form a national framework which is available for the engineering regulators to amend legislation or make changes to bylaws or regulations.
The key considerations and implementation details will be developed collaboratively by the engineering regulators with extensive consultation to identify best practices for use by the engineering regulators.
The Canadian Framework for Licensure will allow our governments and the engineering regulators to develop and implement their shared vision for the 21st century.
