Requesting Reassessment of Your Application Decision

The following requirements are for applicants who received a decision after January 20, 2017. If you received your decision before January 20, 2017, please contact [email protected] for more information.

When submitting a request for reassessment, you must submit your request within 90 days of receiving the Board of Examiner's (BOE) decision letter.

If you do not submit within 90 days of your decision letter, you will lose the opportunity to apply for a reassessment. At that point, you must either accept and continue with the decision made by the BOE, or you may withdraw and re-apply with a new application later.

To request a reassessment, email [email protected] with:

  • A completed Request for Reassessment application with payment information
  • Payment of a non-refundable reassessment fee of $225 + GST
  • A letter addressed to the BOE with the details of your request, as well as any supporting materials
  • Information or material that should be been included with your original application but was not previously submitted. This may include:
    • WES-ICAP report (course-by-course)¹
    • transcripts
    • course descriptions²
    • work experience records
  • Do not include information that includes new events or updates that happened after your original application

Review the required documents for your application type:

¹ WES-ICAP report (course-by-course): This report only confirms the level of your Canadian-equivalent education including masters degree, bachelors degree, diploma, or college-level certificate. The BOE will decide if the content and quality of your education is acceptable to be licensed in engineering or geoscience.

² Course descriptions: These may come directly from your institution, you may send copies that are available on your institution’s website, or you may send us original official university material such as the course or program listing, academic calendar, or catalogue. Course description content must be the same as during the time of your studies.

Should I Include a WES-ICAP Report?

If You've Been Assigned Confirmatory Exams

If you have been assigned the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam or the Fundamentals of Geology (FG) exam to confirm the quality of your education and test your understanding of material already studied, providing a WES-ICAP report will not change the outcome of the BOE's decision.

If You've Been Assigned a Course-by-Course Assessment

If you have been assigned a course-by-course assessment to correct perceived academic deficiencies in your education, it is in your best interest to provide a WES-ICAP report to support your claims of the type or length of education, content or Canadian equivalency. If you choose not to provide this documentation, your request for reassessment may be denied.
