As Ontario’s engineering regulator, PEO relies heavily on its volunteers. More than 700 professional engineers, engineering interns and non-engineers volunteer their time each year on behalf of the regulator through their participation.

Significant changes coming to PEO’s Engineering Intern (EIT) program as of July 2023

The EIT program will be suspended to new applicants who apply, and this change will come into effect no later than July 1, 2023. The Professional Engineers Act and its regulations make the EIT program available only to those who have already applied for licensure. Since the required work experience under the FARPACTA-compliant licensing process must be acquired prior to applying, the EIT program, which is designed to assist applicants as they acquire the 48 months of acceptable engineering work experience, is no longer sustainable in its current form. Current P.Eng. applicants who are an EIT may remain in the program so long as they continue their current licensing process. 

Please continue to monitor this webpage and the FARPACTA webpage for more information as it becomes available.
