Become a Licensed Engineer or Geoscientist


Each province or territory in Canada falls under the jurisdiction of one of Canada’s engineering and geoscientists regulators. These organizations regulate every aspect of the engineering and geoscientist profession in Canada and grant engineering and geoscientist licenses. If you intend to apply to become an engineer or geoscientist in Canada, you should contact the regulator (see list below) in the province or territory where you would like to work. The regulator will answer any questions you may have about its regulations or official policies.


Every year, engineering graduates from around the world move to Canada to become licensed engineers. Let North Core Immigration & Employment Services Ltd. guide you through the process of obtaining your license to practice as an Engineer in Canada.


Having attained his engineering credentials outside Canada, our RCIC & Founding Director, Mr. Christopher Angala, has submitted an application and was able to obtain his Engineer-in-Training designation with the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan (APEGS) in 2021. Chris would be more than willing and delighted to share his first-hand experience in the licensing process with his clients.

Important Reminder: The immigration process is completely separate from the Engineer or Geoscience licensing process, but getting your license to practice professional engineering or geoscience can help to increase your chances of immigrating to Canada under the Federal Skilled Worker Program.





To become a licensed engineer in Canada, you must prove that you meet five requirements to the engineering regulator in the province or territory where you’d like to practice:

  • Academic: You have obtained an engineering education.

  • Work experience: You have supervised work experience that demonstrates your ability to apply engineering knowledge.

  • Language: You communicate competently in at least one of Canada’s two official languages.

  • Good character: You have demonstrated truth, honesty, and trustworthiness in your conduct.

  • Professionalism and ethics: You have passed the Professional Practice Examination (PPE).
