Who Can Practice?
PEGNL maintains Member and Company Registers which can be viewed to determine if someone is entitled to practice or if an organization has a permit to practice.
To determine if someone is entitled to practice, check PEGNL's Member Register.
As laid out in the Engineers and Geoscientists Act, 2008 (the "Act"), all practice of engineering or geoscience in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador must be done by or under the supervision of individuals who are licensed by PEGNL.
Check for a permit to practice by visiting PEGNL's Company Register.
All organizations or individuals who offer or provide professional engineering or geoscience services to the public must have a Permit to Practice.
