The application for Professional Registration is for Engineers who are living in Prince Edward Island. If you wish to practice engineering in Prince Edward Island but are NOT moving to Prince Edward Island, you need to apply for a Licence to Practise.
Every person who engages in the practice of engineering in the province of Prince Edward Island must have a valid Certificate of Registration, Licence to Practise or Certificate of Engineer-in-Training in accordance with the Engineering Profession Act and bylaws.
Any applicant for a certificate of registration who satisfies Council that he/she
(a) is a resident or is coming to reside in Prince Edward Island (if you are not moving to PEI, you need to apply for a Licence to Practise);
(b) is a graduate in engineering or applied science of an academic or technical institution recognized by the Council;
(c) has fulfilled the requirements of approved engineering experience as prescribed in the bylaws;
(d) has successfully completed any examinations that may be prescribed by Council;
(e) has provided evidence of good character; and

All applicants for registration are required to pass the National Professional Practice Examination as a prerequisite for registration unless the examination or acceptable equivalent has been successfully written in another Canadian provincial or territorial jurisdiction. This 2.5 hour closed book examination is designed to ensure familiarity with Professional Practice and Ethics, Engineering Law and Professional Liability, and the Engineers PEI Act and By-laws.
All applications must be TYPED or completed legibly in INK in all aspects before they are placed before the Association's Engineering Qualifications Committee for subsequent recommendation to Council. Enclose the necessary fees (registration fee and annual dues) with your application. Please make cheque or money order payable to Engineers PEI.
Please read the application form carefully and provide compete information. At page 3, item 4, details must be sufficient to permit assessment of your experience. Your narrative must contain your position and a brief, but concise description of your duties and projects. Also include the names of Professional Engineers who were your supervisors.
Only those periods of work experience attested to by a registered professional engineer, who works in close association with you or was your immediate supervisor, will be accepted towards meeting the experience requirement.
A Masters degree in Engineering, if combined with work experience during enrolment in the program, may be considered by Council as equivalent to one year of engineering work experience. Alternatively, the work experience may stand alone.
Three references from professional engineers are required, ONE of whom must be a member of Engineers PEI. Please include full mailing address for each referee in order that Engineers PEI may contact them concerning your experience. Please do not have your referees initial your occupational history. Engineers PEI will contact them.
Certification of Degree
Graduates with an accredited engineering degree from a Canadian or United States university must arrange to have a letter from the Registrar mailed directly to Engineers PEI. Applicants with degrees from non-accredited universities must have WES (World Education Services) authenticate and evaluate their credentials. Click here to find out how to have this completed. The Engineering Qualifications Committee will assess whether or not such an applicant may meet the academic requirements for registration by passing prescribed examinations from the CCPE List Confirmatory Program, Non-List Confirmatory Program or Examination Program, or by passing the FE (Fundamentals of Engineering) Exam.
NOTE: An Accredited engineering degree is one conferred by a university whose engineering program is accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board (CEAB) of the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers or the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology of the United States (ABET). The CEAB may also deem programs which have been evaluated in other jurisdictions to be substantially equivalent to CEAB-accredited programs and graduates of such programs are normally considered to be academically qualified for licensing.
