Certification

Regulatory bodies of all certified professions make sure that their members meet specified standards of practice. They have the authority to:

* Set entry and training requirements

* Set standards of practice

* Assess qualifications and credentials

* Register qualified applicants, and

* Discipline members.

Once you apply for certification, the regulatory body will assess your qualifications to determine whether you qualify to be licensed, registered or certified to practice your profession in Ontario. It is our experience that in vast majority of the cases applicants have to enroll in an examination program that is determined by the regulatory body, depending on their educational qualifications and experience. Time taken and cost of processing your application varies. Generally, you need to have at least one year Canadian experience to get your license/ certificate once you complete your examination program and/ or pass your viva. However it is always advisable to apply for the certification at the earliest as there are special concessions for new immigrants. It’s very important to note that in Ontario, it is illegal for someone to use protected titles such as Professional Engineer (P.Eng.), Professional Geologist (P.Geo.) without being licensed by the respective professional body.
