Find Work in Engineering

What Do I Need to Know About Finding Engineering Work In Canada?

There are some important things you need to know about finding work as an engineer in Canada:

  • Your qualifications may not be immediately recognized—especially if you have not yet obtained your one year of Canadian engineering work experience. Having your qualifications recognized can take up to several years. However, you can still work in engineering work during this period, as long as you are supervised by a professional engineer (P.Eng.).

  • Communicating well in English or French, is essential for success in Canada. Use the time before you come to improve your language skills. You may also need to take additional language training during your first few years here.
