Canadian Council of Technicians and Technologists
Canada is a world leader in the application of new technology, and technicians and technologists are key elements in Canada’s success. Canada’s certified technicians and technologists make a difference in nearly every facet of business, industry and government.
CCTT is the national voice on issues such as pan-Canadian standards, national and international mobility, and national accreditation of technology programs. Very important, CCTT establishes and maintains the National Technology Benchmarks® in the following applied science and engineering technology disciplines: bioscience, industrial, building, instrumentation, chemical, mechanical, civil, mining, electrical, petroleum, electronics, geomatics, forestry, and information technology.
CCTT’s provincial associations are responsible for issuing these highly regarded credentials, which are recognized by provincial statute in many Canadian provinces. Once certified, technicians and technologists may use one of the following professional designations: CET (Certified Engineering Technologist); AScT (Applied Science Technologist); CTech (Certified Technician); and TP (technologue professionnel).
Canadian Technology Immigration Network
The Canadian Technology Immigration Network (CTIN) has been developed with the specific goal of assisting internationally-trained engineering technology professionals in having their credentials recognized and finding successful employment in Canada.
CTIN’s national network of partners includes provincial regulatory bodies, provincial government immigration departments, community colleges, immigrant settlement organizations and immigrant employment councils. Working together in each province of Canada, CTIN’s partners provide assistance to technically trained immigrants prior to their arrival and after their landing in Canada to help increase their chances of employment success.
Engineers Canada is the national organization of the 12 provincial and territorial associations that regulate the profession of engineering in Canada and license the country’s more than 260,000 members of the engineering profession. Engineers Canada serves the associations, which are its constituent and sole members, by delivering national programs that ensure the highest standards of engineering education, professional qualifications and professional practice. It is the voice of its constituent associations in national and international affairs and promotes greater understanding of the nature, role and contribution of engineering to society.
