Complaints and Discipline

By Provincial Statute, the regulation of the practice of Professional Engineering in Nova Scotia is vested in The Association of Professional Engineers of Nova Scotia (d.b.a. Engineers Nova Scotia). Any person practising professional engineering within the province must be licensed by the Association. Discipline of registrants and the complaints process is described in Section 17 of the Engineering Profession Act. 


Any person who has a concern about the work of a registrant (Professional Engineer or Engineer-in-Training) of Engineers Nova Scotia may raise this concern with Engineers Nova Scotia. At the outset, you will discuss your concern with the Chief Operating Officer, and provide information relative to it. This is done to determine whether the matter falls under the regulatory authority of the Association or may be addressed in another way. If it does fall under the regulatory authority of the Association, you may choose to file a complaint. 


A brochure outlining the Complaints and Discipline process is available here.


Information on suspended and restricted registrants and companies is available here.
