Impact on Accreditation of engineering programs

The Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) is monitoring how the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting the delivery of CEAB-accredited engineering education programs, and the decisions being made by HEIs to protect their school communities. Please review the statements of March 12 and March 31 (for regulators and for HEIs) for more information.

We thank you for your patience and understanding during this time. For more information on how you can protect yourself and others, please visit the Public Health Agency of Canada.
