UPDATE: The opportunities are posted and additional info.

Overview

The OPS Internship Program for Internationally Trained Engineers (ITEs) provides paid work placements of 12 to 15 months in duration. The internship experience is designed to give the relevant Canadian work experience required for licensing by Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO), the licensing body for engineers in Ontario, so interns can meet licence requirements and join Ontario’s labour market.

Available positions are posted in the Internship Assignments section below. All 2012 positions are 12 months in duration and have an annual minimum salary of $60,682. Applicants should have, or be eligible for, their provisional licence from PEO. Your application should include your resume and cover letter along with a copy of your provisional licence or letter from PEO stating your eligibility for a provisional licence. The closing date for all positions is July 26, 2012. Please see the relevant job ad for instructions on where to send your application.

Eligibility

Internationally trained engineers who apply for ITE positions must have been screened through Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO) to ascertain that they qualify by satisfying technical/educational requirements for licensing except for the 12-months of Canadian experience.  Candidates should provide documentation from PEO with their applications that demonstrate they have:

  • Satisfied PEO’s academic and technical requirements for licensing except for the minimum 12 months of verifiable and acceptable engineering experience in a                             Canadian jurisdiction, under the supervision of a professional engineer licensed in the jurisdiction in which the work was undertaken.

In addition, candidates must:

The OPS employs engineers in a range of disciplines, including:

Candidates will be hired for positions that are compatible with their academic discipline, so they may meet PEO’s licence requirements and become licensed engineers at the end of the internship period.
