Default Professional Engineers in Canada

Good Afternoon British Expats.

I'm wondering if anyone can help me understand the process of becoming a professional engineer in Canada.

I am currently in the process of getting an ECA through WES and then hopefully have enough points to get our ITA. But I'm also doing some research on jobs in Canada. We are hoping to move to either Alberta or Saskatchewan.

Currently I am a Senior Manufacturing Engineer working for a defence contractor here in the UK. I have a BEng in Computer Aided Engineering, HNC & ONC in Manufacturing Engineering, NVQ Level 3 & 4 and have completed an Accredited Apprenticeship. I've also 12 years experience within Engineering (mainly aerospace but currently shipbuilding).

Over here our 'Engineers' aren't regulated like they are in Canada - anyone can call themselves 'Engineers' (which offends me as someone who's trained hard to become an 'Engineer'), so I'm presuming that I'll have to become a professional engineer once I'm in Canada to maximise job opportunities.

Has anyone of you kind folk on here gone through the process?
Any advice, tips etc is greatly appreciated. No nasty comments please

Kind regards,
Philippa

You'll need to go through these guys to see how you stand.

Saskatchewan

Alberta

For a professional engineer it's normally a 4-year degree plus 4 years as an Engineer in training (under the supervision of a Professional Engineer [P.Eng]) before you're qualified.
