Resources for educators
EngScape is a great place for students and youth to explore the world of engineering and what it can offer them. The site can help them uncover which type of engineering might interest them, where they can pursue a post-secondary education in engineering, and what type of engineering jobs might be available to them upon graduation. Ultimately, EngScape is a valuable tool for students as they contemplate their post-secondary plans.
To help bring EngScape to your students, Engineers Canada has developed a lesson plan that educators can use to introduce your students to engineering and the career prospects it can hold for them. Also included are EngScape and National Engineering Month posters that can be printed and hung in your classroom, library or school to let students know that EngScape is a resource available to them.

Labour Market Report
Engineers Canada has developed the report, Engineering Labour Market in Canada: Projections to 2025 (pdf). The report characterizes current supply and demand of engineers in Canada by geography and discipline. The report provides a 10 year outlook.
Roadmap to Engineering in Canada
Engineers Canada, with funding from Citizenship and Immigration Canada, has developed this website to provide a single source of information to international engineering graduates looking to become licensed engineers in Canada. This website has information on a range of topics such as:
- getting licensed,
- finding the right employment and tips to increase your likelihood of employment,
- fitting into the Canadian engineering profession,
- and settlement in Canada.
Over the years, Engineers Canada has developed a number of processes to make access to the profession easier for international engineering graduates. We hope that this website will help you make better informed decisions about a career in engineering in Canada.
Mobility of Engineers across Canada
Engineers require a licence in each province or territory where they intend to practise.
The Agreement on Internal Trade provides that engineers licensed in one province or territory, are entitled to a license to practice engineering in other provinces or territories. This is important for career movement and to ensure that engineering skills and knowledge are available throughout the country.
Managing Transitions: Before, During and After Leave
Managing Transitions: Before, During and After Leave (pdf) is intended to assist engineers and geoscientists who are considering parental leave and their employers. It provides extensive checklists and outlines steps that individuals, supervisors and companies can take to help smoothly off- and on- ramp employees taking a leave of absence.
