Membership in a professional order is a privilege granted by Québec society which recognizes the right of certain individuals to practise a specific profession. In return, to maintain its trust in these professionals, the public expects that they will provide their services in a competent, responsible manner.
Therefore, the Québec professional system recognizes that only those individuals entered
on the roll of the Order who hold an engineer’s permit issued by the Order are entitled to perform
the professional activities reserved to the profession or, in other words, to practise as an Engineer.
Obtaining the Junior Engineer’s permit is an important step towards achieving the status
of a Professional Engineer. It is a period of training that enables Junior Engineers to acquire
the experience and competencies they need to successfully practise as fully autonomous professionals.
