Technology Accreditation Canada


Technology Accreditation Canada (TAC) is the sole accreditation body for the engineering technology and applied science profession in Canada. TAC’s mission is to deliver world class accreditation, collaborating with educational institutions to support their delivery of the highest quality education, providing confidence to graduates and employers. 

Incorporated on December 30, 2013, TAC was created by Technology Professionals Canada (TPC) in direct response to CSA Group performing a comprehensive, independent review of technology accreditation practices that existed at the time measured against best practices from other jurisdictions and sectors.

In late 2019, TAC added five new member organizations to the original four and acquired the CTAB accredited programs from Canadian Council of Technicians and Technologists. As a result, TAC has over 175 national accredited programs in 12 disciplines of engineering technology and applied science.
