Changes to the P.Eng. Transfer Application
The required documents to apply as a P.Eng. transfer have changed. Current transfer applicants will continue their licensing process as normal until further notice.
P.Eng. Transfer Application Form
To transfer your P.Eng. licence from another Canadian engineering regulator to PEO, please download and complete this fillable application form and send a signed copy with all required documents to email@example.com.
If you are applying as a P.Eng. Transfer Applicant, please send your P.Eng. Transfer Application Form and required documents to firstname.lastname@example.org for review.
If you already hold a P.Eng. licence from another Canadian engineering association/order, a national mobility agreement between all the provinces and territories allows you to move between provinces and territories without having to repeat the entire licensing process. PEO applicants who are licensed as professional engineers in good standing in another Canadian engineering association/ordre are not required to submit transcripts or write PEO’s National Professional Practice Examination (NPPE).
Please note, there is no mobility agreement for Engineers-In-Training or Engineering Interns (EIT), and EITs cannot transfer their EIT membership between Canadian engineering regulators. Only individuals who are a P.Eng. licence holder with another Canadian regulator can submit a P.Eng. Transfer Application.
Please note: transfer applications from P.Engs with a restricted practice status in another province will be rejected.
Applicants who are licensed as professional engineers in good standing in another Canadian engineering regulator/ordre can transfer their licence to PEO by completing the P.Eng. Transfer Application Form.
When submitting your application, please include:
- A completed and signed application form
- A current resume
- An acceptable identification document
Applicants are not required to submit transcripts nor write the National Professional Practice Examination.
Please send your application package by email to: email@example.com
