Language Requirement

Every professional engineer (P.Eng.) in Canada must meet a language competency requirement. This is to demonstrate that you can communicate clearly and professionally with colleagues, clients and the public—verbally and in writing—in one of Canada’s official languages: English or French.

Check with the provincial/territorial engineering association where you want to work to find out the recognized language of practice as well as the assessment method in that province or territory.
