In Newfoundland and Labrador, registration is mandatory for anyone practicing engineering of geoscience as defined in the Engineers and Geoscientists Act, 2008. Professional members licensed by PEGNL (including Limited Licensees) are the only persons permitted by law to undertake and assume responsibility for engineering and geoscience work in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. Registration requirements are laid out in PEGNL’s Registration Policy.
Members-in-Training (Engineer-in-Training or Geoscientist-in-Training) meet the academic requirements for registration but have not yet fulfilled other requirements for registration.
Professional Licensure Applicants
Professional licensure is granted to any applicant who meets the requirements for registration. There are two categories of professional licensure: (P. Eng.) and (P. Geo.).
Professional Licensure Transfer Applicants
Professional engineers or geoscientists who are licensed and in good standing in another province or territory in Canada can transfer their registration to PEGNL.
Limited Licensure Applicants
A limited licensee is a member of PEGNL who has the right to independently practice engineering or geoscience within a defined individualized scope of practice.
Permit to Practice Applicants
Section 8(2) of the Act, 2008 requires that any entity that provides the services of a professional member to the public must have a Permit to Practice.
