Licence Reinstatements

P.Eng. licence holders who have allowed their licence to lapse can apply for reinstatement. The process will depend on how long the licence has been cancelled.

P.Eng. licence holders who have allowed their licence to lapse are invited to follow one of the following courses of action, depending on the time that has elapsed since PEO cancelled their licence. The cancellation date that applies to you is stated on the cancellation letter you received from PEO. Please note that the cancellation date is neither the date when your previous licence was scheduled to expire (i.e. renewal date), nor the date when you might have advised PEO to cancel your licence.
