Certification and Licensing

HomeCertification and Licensing

In Canada, the title “Power Engineer” is a protected designation reserved for individuals certified by one of Canada’s Provinces and Territories.

Each province in Canada regulates power engineers through its own technical safety regulator, granted power by enabling acts or laws from the federal government. These regulators are responsible for issuing, maintaining, and, in certain cases, revoking power engineering licenses, all in the interest of public safety.

Standardization of Power Engineers Examinations Committee (SOPEEC) oversees power engineer examinations and licensing across all 10 provinces and three territories. Recommendations for regulations come from the Interprovincial Power Engineering Curriculum Committee (IPECC).

For further information on provincial and territorial safety regulators for power engineering, please refer to their respective websites.
