To be eligible for entry into the Engineers Canada Mobility Register, you must have completed a minimum of seven years of practical experience since graduation in the discipline of engineering practice for which you are submitting this application. Additionally, you must meet the requirement of having at least two years of being in responsible charge of significant engineering work.
In general, significant engineering work can be defined as work that requires the exercise of independent engineering judgment, the programs and projects concerned should have been substantial in duration, cost, or complexity, and the applicant should have been personally accountable for their success or failure. An applicant may be taken to have been in responsible charge of significant engineering work when they have:
- planned, designed, coordinated and executed a small project; or,
- undertaken part of a larger project based on an understanding of the whole project; or,
- undertaken novel, complex and/or multidisciplinary work.
Demonstrating responsible charge for significant engineering work means that others have relied on your opinions, judgments, or designs and you were held to high standards of knowledge, skill and ethical conduct. This would typically require you to have:
- stamped or sealed professional engineering documents have been prepared and delivered in your professional capacity, or directly supervised by you in which you take full responsibility for their contents; or,
- been a registered engineer on certificate required by a Canadian regulator to permits the entity to engage in the business of providing services that are within the practice of professional engineering (I.e. Certificate of Authorization, Certificate of Practice, etc.); or,
- been designated as a consulting engineer or a specialist by a Canadian regulator; or,
- provided expert testimony as an engineer before a court or tribunal.
The two years involving responsible charge of significant engineering work may be included within the seven years of professional experience but must be gained post-licensure.
