Senior Candidate applications

Senior Candidate applications for the 2025 Ritual of the Calling of an Engineer will open in November of 2024, and application instructions will be posted here at that time.


Senior candidate status is available to anyone who:

  1. is or has previously been a fully-licensed professional engineer in Canada, or
  2. is a graduate of an accredited Canadian undergraduate engineering program, or
  3. has received confirmation of academic acceptability for licensure from a Canadian provincial or territorial regulator of professional engineering such as Professional Engineers Ontario.

If you are currently an undergraduate engineering student you should not apply using the Senior Candidate process; you will receive an invitation to register through your home university.

If your undergraduate degree is from outside Canada or is not from an accredited engineering programme, you will not qualify as a Senior Candidate unless you can provide documentation demonstrating eligibility under points 1 or 3 above. It is not necessary to have completed the licensure process, just the assessment of academic acceptability.
