  • Defending engineers at formal PEO discipline hearings in front of the PEO’s Discipline Committee;
  • Representing engineers in PEO appeals before the Divisional Court of Ontario; and
  • Advising engineers on various practice issues, such as licencing issues, performance standards, and employment/contract issues related to staff and contractors.


Responding To A Complaint At Professional Engineers Ontario

Professional Engineers Ontario (“PEO”) investigates complaints made against licenced engineers, as well as individuals who are not licence holders and are practising using titles that are restricted to members. For engineers, these proceedings have the potential to result in professional consequences. As a result, it is good to have a basic understanding of the process for responding to complaints.
