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.
