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.
The engineering profession in Ontario is governed through self-regulation
The engineering profession in Ontario is governed through self-regulation, a privilege granted by the provincial government under the Professional Engineers Act. PEO relies on members' voluntary participation to govern and manage its affairs.
PEO’s volunteers participate on committees, task forces and PEO’s 36 chapters, which work together to support the association.
Committees are appointed by Council to address a continuing need and generally stand for several years. Task forces have a limited life-span and are appointed by Council or its Executive Committee, to study issues, develop recommendations, or oversee special initiatives.
PEO recognizes volunteers who have served on chapters, committees/ task forces, or PEO Council and celebrates achievements of milestone years of service. PEO also recognizes professional engineers and others who have rendered conspicuous service to the engineering profession, normally through association, through the Order of Honour awards program.
