International Registers

In addition to various international agreements, Engineers Canada is a signatory to two international registers. Engineers listed on the registers may have an easier time moving among participating countries:

The International Professional Engineers Agreement (IPEA) provides for recognition of substantial equivalency of standards and quality assurance systems used to establish the competency of engineers for independent practise.

The APEC Engineer Competence Agreement (APECEA) provides for recognition of substantial equivalency of standards and quality assurance systems used to establish competency of engineers for independent practise within the APEC economies.

For information on whether a Register is recognized in a specific Canadian province or territory, consult with the individual Canadian engineering regulatory bodies.
