P.Eng. Transfer From Another Province

Applicants who hold a P.Eng. licence from another province may apply as a PEO licence holder without repeating their entire licensure process.

PEO and COVID-19

In light of concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and the need for social distancing, PEO is no longer directly accepting incoming mail deliveries. Deliveries are being received and securely held onsite by PEO’s property manager.

Applications for licences and certificates of authorization will not be accepted by mail until further notice. Please note that applications cannot be sent to PEO electronically at this time.

Members and applicants are advised not to mail cheques to PEO until further notice. Payment of fees and dues, as well as payments for renewals of certificates of authorization, can be made online. All fees and dues continue to be payable.

PEO staff remain available to respond by phone and email to all inquiries, including those related to the application process.

Please check our website regularly for further updates: https://www.peo.on.ca/latest-news/peo-covid-19

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 Professional Practice Examination.

Submission requirements

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 Professional Engineer Licence application.

When submitting your application, please include:

  • A copy of your current resume
  • A copy of your proof of identity. Please use one of the following official documents: Canadian birth certificate, Canadian citizen card/certificate (both sides), permanent resident card (both sides) or Form IMM 1000 of record of landing.
  • Application fee: $360 + HST = $406.80 (in Canadian dollars, cheque or money order, made payable to Professional Engineers of Ontario)

Note: Faxed or scanned applications are not acceptable because we require an original handwritten signature.

The application package should be submitted by mail or in-person to:

Professional Engineers Ontario
