  • Engineers-in-training

Tools to assess international graduates:

 

Why does the Canadian Engineering Qualifications Board exist?

  • To help the engineering regulators use consistent practices.
  • To make it easier for engineers to work across Canada.
  • To identify new types of engineering practice (for example, nanotechnology).

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:

  • Admission Issues Committee (Terms of Reference)
    The role of this committee is to support the admissions activities of the regulators and to enhance the relationships between the regulators, admissions officials, and the Canadian Engineering Qualifications Board.
  • Continuing Competence Committee (Terms of Reference)
    The role of this committee is to enhance the relationships among the regulators and the Canadian Engineering Qualifications Board in support of continuing professional development and continuing competence activities carried out across the country.
  • 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, and develop responses to environment, sustainability, and climate change issues at the national level.
  • Practice Committee (Terms of Reference)
    The role of this committee is to enhance the relationships among the regulators and the Canadian Engineering Qualifications Board in support of professional practice activities through the dissemination of best practices, inter-regulator knowledge exchange, and the development of national model guides.
  • Syllabus Committee (Terms of Reference)
    The role of this committee is to develop and update the Examination Syllabi and their related documents, and to provide a mechanism to identify and create Examination Syllabi reflective of accredited programs offered in Canada.

Task groups are also formed as necessary to address issues identified by the Canadian Engineering Qualifications Board.
