Technology Professionals Canada 

Technology Professionals Canada (TPC) is an alliance of engineering and applied science technology professional organizations whose primary function is to better protect the Canadian public by regulating the conduct of engineering technology and applied science professionals. The alliance was originally founded in 2010 by Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario, and Saskatchewan. In March 2020, Manitoba, Newfoundland and Labrador, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island joined the alliance, strengthening its Canadian voice for change by representing over 91% of registered professional technologists and technicians in Canada. TPC was incorporated on January 13, 2016 with its by-laws and governing documents updated in June 2020 to reflect the expanded membership. In January 2021, the expanded membership approved the following strategic plan:

  • Create uniform certification and practice standards
  • Develop standard designations and/or equivalencies which will ensure labour mobility
  • Provide support to provincial organizations pursuing the development of definitions of practice
  • Generate greater awareness of TPC and the role of Engineering and Applied Science professionals in Canada
  • Continue to support the success of TAC
