    Junior engineer program 

     

    On April 1, 2019, the junior engineer program was replaced by a new professional admission program, the CEP program, which not only better meets the needs of the engineering profession, but also better protects the public.

    End of the junior engineer program

    The junior engineer program will end on April 1, 2020 and the junior engineer and engineer-in-training titles will no longer be recognized from that date forward. Please note that no grace periods or exceptions will be granted.

    Are you a junior engineer or an engineer-in-training? These are your options:

    • Fulfill the requirements of the junior engineer program by April 1, 2022 to obtain your full-fledged engineer’s permit;
    • Become a candidate to the engineering profession (CEP), fulfill the requirements of the CEP program within a maximum of 5 years and obtain your full-fledged engineer’s permit;
    • Voluntarily have your name removed from the OIQ’s membership roll;
    • Take no action and your name will be removed from the OIQ’s roll.
