c) Temporary Licence (TL) Description (c)

A temporary licence is issued on a project and discipline basis to engage in the practice of professional engineering for a maximum period of 12 months from approval. One does not have to be a citizen of Canada or a permanent resident of Canada to apply for a temporary licence.
