Canadian Engineering Qualifications Board

What does the Canadian Engineering Qualifications Board do?

The Canadian Engineering Qualifications Board develops national guidelines, white papers, and examination syllabi that serve the needs of regulators, engineering licence holders, and applicants for licensure by enabling the assessment of engineering qualifications, fostering excellence in engineering practice and regulation, and facilitating mobility. See the 2019-2021 Canadian Engineering Qualifications Board Work Plan.

Who does the Canadian Engineering Qualifications Board report to?

The Canadian Engineering Qualifications Board is a committee of the Engineers Canada Board.

Several sub-committees assist the Canadian Engineering Qualifications Board in its work. Each sub-committee is chaired by a Canadian Engineering Qualifications Board member and consists of volunteers and staff from the provincial and territorial engineering regulators.

The following are the current sub-committees that assist the Canadian Engineering Qualifications Board

  • Engineer-in-Training Committee (Terms of Reference)
    The role of this committee is to help with student and engineer-in-training-related activities and initiatives by developing tools and documents to facilitate the licensure of engineers-in-training and to work towards more mobility for them.
  • Environment and Sustainability Committee (Terms of Reference)
    The role of this committee is to monitor, report on, and develop responses to environment, sustainability, and climate change issues at the national level.
