CCPE Engineering International-Education Assessment Program (EIEAP)
The Engineering International-Education Assessment Program (EIEAP) assesses the educational qualifications of individuals who were educated and trained outside of Canada, by comparing their education to a Canadian engineering education. The EIEAP is the only assessment service in Canada specializing exclusively in the assessment of engineering education credentials. It does not evaluate work experience.
CCPE - Engineering in Canada
In Canada, engineering is a regulated profession. This means that by law, no one can practise the profession of engineering without a license. Licensing is carried out by 12 provincial and territorial associations/ordre who set standards and regulate the profession. An engineering licence is valid only within that jurisdiction, however, there is a mobility agreement among the provinces and territories regarding transfer of licences. These associations serve and protect the public on behalf of their provincial or territorial government.
CCPE - Immigrating to Canada
Canada's national engineering body - the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers (CCPE) - operates the Engineering International-Education Assessment Program (EIEAP), which assesses the educational qualifications of internationally trained individuals, comparing their education to a Canadian engineering education. The EIEAP is the only assessment service in Canada specializing exclusively in engineering education credentials. It does not evaluate work experience.
CCPE - From Consideration to Integration (FC2I)
The goal of FC2I is to develop new processes and/or improve current processes by which international engineering graduates (IEGs) are able to obtain an engineering licence without compromising public safety or lowering professional standards, and to find meaningful engineering employment.
