Engineers Canada is the national organization of the 12 provincial and territorial associations that regulate the profession of engineering in Canada and license the country’s more than 280,000 members of the engineering profession.
In addition to being the voice of the regulators in national and international affairs, Engineers Canada coordinates the development of national policies, positions and guidelines on behalf of the engineering profession. It also promotes greater understanding of the nature, role and contribution of professional engineers and engineering to society, and undertakes federal government relations and national media relations on behalf of, and in consultation with, the provincial and territorial regulators. Engineers Canada is also responsible for setting qualification standards for the engineering profession in Canada and accredits Canadian undergraduate programs.
Without the on-going assistance of Engineers Canada, many of the programs and services offered by the CFES would be unable to exist.
