Benchmarking the Canadian Engineering Accreditation System

In support of Engineers Canada’s strategic priority to Investigate and Validate the Purpose and Scope of Accreditation, this report provides a benchmarking of the accreditation systems of comparator jurisdictions (Australia, France, Malaysia, and Poland,) and comparator regulated professions within Canada (Information Technology and Processing Professionals, Nursing, and Social Work).

Document Description Publication date
Purpose of Accreditation document

The Purpose Task Force was mandated to either validate the current purpose of accreditation or establish a revised purpose. The purpose is intended to be a foundational statement about why accreditation exists, what it must achieve, and for whom. This document will also contribute to determining the path forward for accreditation.

Academic Requirement document

The Academic Requirement Task Force was mandated to investigate the establishment of an academic requirement for licensure that applies to all applicants. This document provides a comprehensive overview of the draft concepts at their current stage of development and its contents represent work in progress. This document will also contribute to determining the path forward for accreditation.

Futures of Engineering Accreditation Journey Map

The Journey Map showcases the work the Future of Engineering Accreditation project will undertake over the course of three years.

Accreditation 101

Accreditation 101 provides an overview of the accreditation process and Engineers Canada’s accreditation system.

Foresight Session Event Journal (November 2022)

From November 24-25th, 2022, we brought together a committed group of over 70 individuals to look holistically at the engineering profession, anticipate emerging shifts and begin identifying implications for the accreditation system and the academic requirement for engineering licensure. This document details key themes, insights, and reflections from the event.

Perspectives on The Purpose of Accreditation: Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board & Canadian Engineering Qualifications Board

In September 2022, Coeuraj and Engineers Canada gathered with the CEAB and CEAB individually, for these groups to share perspectives on the purpose and structure of the accreditation system. This report outlines the key perspectives of both groups.

Gathering Engineering Deans Canada’s Perspectives on Accreditation

On May 16, 2022, Engineers Canada and Coeuraj were invited to join the annual Spring Meeting of EDC, to facilitate a 90-minute collaborative session in which we mapped out responses to four key questions pertaining to our work to determine the purpose and scope of accreditation. This document provides a summary of the presentations, as well as the notes that each participant took.
