The Lake Ontario Chapter (LOC) of Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO) is located in PEO‘s East Central Region, and is responsible for the delivery of educational outreach, professional services and the organization of technical and social events for approximately 3100 local Professional Engineers and Engineers-in-Training.

PEAK – Professional Quality Assurance Beyond Licensure

The Practice Evaluation and Knowledge (PEAK) program helps to serve and protect the public interest related to the practice of engineering in Ontario. The program collects vital details on whether PEO licence holders practise, how they practise and how they stay knowledgeable. These details equip PEO to more effectively regulate the engineering profession in Ontario through evidence-based policy making.

Through the PEAK program, the public will have access to the practice status declaration and PEAK program completion status for every PEO licence holder.

PEO Lake Ontario Chapter Scholarship

The Lake Ontario Chapter Scholarship Fund provides financial assistance to a deserving Grade 12 students graduating from a school physically located in the Region of Durham and entering a Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board-accredited engineering program at a University in the province of Ontario. The Fund also raises the awareness locally of Professional Engineers Ontario, the engineering profession, the student mentorship program and licensure in engineering. It is hoped that recipients of PEO Chapter Scholarships would seek licensure upon graduation.

What is the PEO Licensure Assistance Program? 

The PEO Licensure Assistance Program is a program that links Engineering Interns (Interns) with Professional Engineers (Guides) licensed with PEO to provide the interns with guidance and support as they progress towards professional licensure status.
