National Engineering Guidelines

What are national guidelines?

National guidelines are recommendations for the provincial and territorial engineering regulatory bodies and the public on:

  • professional requirements
  • programs for members of the provincial and territorial engineering regulatory bodies
  • assessment tools for international graduates

Why do national guidelines exist?

  • To help the provincial and territorial engineering regulatory bodies use consistent practices
  • To provide information to the public on aspects of the engineering profession
  • To assist individuals practising engineering

National Guidelines

Disclaimer:

Engineers Canada’s national guidelines were developed in collaboration with the provincial and territorial engineering regulatory bodies. They are guidelines, not regulations. Each engineer regulatory body sets its own rules and regulations, which vary from one province or territory to another.

In Canada, professional engineering is regulated under provincial and territorial law by the engineering regulatory bodies. Engineers Canada has no authority over these associations. For the specific rules and regulations that apply to you, contact the engineering regulatory body in the province or territory where you plan to work.
