Canadian Engineering Qualifications Board

What does the Canadian Engineering Qualifications Board do?

The Canadian Engineering Qualifications Board develops national guidelines, Engineers Canada 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 National Engineering Guidelines and Engineers Canada papers.

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.
