Bridging Programs for International Engineering Graduates (IEGs)

Through funding from the Government of Ontario, the Ontario Society of Professional Engineers (OSPE) offers two Bridge Training Programs to help speed the integration of international engineering graduates (IEGs) into Ontario's labour market. Our bridging programs aim to bring each IEG one step closer to meeting the ultimate goal – a rewarding career in Canada.
