P.Eng. Licence Application Form
As of July 11, 2022, PEO has implemented a new, fully online P.Eng. application system through the PEO portal. New applicants will need to create an account to access the PEO portal. Once you have registered for an account, you may log in and navigate to the application tab to start the P.Eng. licensing application.
Individuals may only call themselves a professional engineer, or a P.Eng., if they possess a P.Eng. licence from the Canadian province or territory in which they reside. To become a P.Eng. in Ontario, the person must be licensed by Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO).
Requirements for Licensure
To be granted a P.Eng. licence, the applicant must:
P.Eng. Application Process
PEO’s P.Eng. application process has four sequential stages. The order of the stages is meeting the academic requirement, passing the National Professional Practice Exam, satisfying the experience requirement, and then the licence review and approval.
During the application process, the applicant will be assigned deadlines to meet PEO’s requirements and submit additional information as required. If the deadlines are not met, the application may be closed.
Academic requirements: CEAB vs non-CEAB program graduates
The P.Eng. application process is determined by whether the applicant has met PEO’s academic requirement.
Applicants holding a bachelor's degree in engineering from a Canadian university program accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) will meet the academic requirement.
Applicants holding a bachelor's degree in engineering from a program that is not a CEAB-accredited engineering (non-CEAB) program will have their academics assessed against the Canadian Engineering Qualification Board criteria to determine whether the applicant meets PEO’s academic requirement under their engineering program.
