The EP community consists of thousands of diverse professionals across Canada– including environmental scientists, technicians, engineers, biologists, managers, consultants, and executives – who meet the national standards of excellence for environmental work.
EP members maintain their designation year after year to showcase their credibility, connect with the industry, gain recognition and take advantage of exclusive benefits.
EPs are required to:
- Meet the standard of environmental skills and knowledge according to the National Occupational Standards (NOS) for Environmental Employment in Canada
- Demonstrate professional integrity as they are accountable to the EP Code of Ethics
- Remain on top of current practices by meeting ongoing professional development requirements and renew their designation annually
- Meet the skills and competencies in one or more of 14 areas of specialization
The Canadian Environmental Certification Approvals Board (CECAB) is responsible for the overseeing the administration, evaluation and ratification of ECO Canada’s certification of EPs in Canada.
