Upon receiving your application, the Access to the Profession Department verifies that your diploma was indeed issued following the completion of a program of study accredited by the Canadian Engineer Accreditation Board (CEAB) program and ensures that all the required documents have been included.
The Order then informs you in writing of the status of your application, that is, whether your file
is complete or whether you must provide additional documentation.
If you have satisfied all the requirements, your file is submitted to the Executive Committee
for the issuance of your Junior Engineer’s permit. This committee meets approximately every
six to eight weeks.
Please note that if your program of study does not appear in the Regulation respecting the diplomas issued by designated educational institutions which give access to permits or specialist’s certificates
of professional orders, your file must first be submitted to the Professional Practice Admission Committee (previously named the Examiners' Committee), which could delay the issuance of your permit by an additional four weeks or so.
If you have any questions concerning the recommendation made by the Professional Practice Admission Committee (previously named the Examiners' Committee), you may contact the Access to the Profession Department. The staff will be able to explain the reasons behind the Committee’s decision. If you disagree with the decision or if you have new elements to submit, you have the right to request a review of your file by filling out the request form-application review.
