      From what I heard, chances are not high as they need Canadian degree and recommendation. But you can try anyway!
      Good luck.

        The only problem that I can think of is the lack of experience... I don't foresee any significant hurdles if you have 5+ years of experience, but anything less than that is iffy. For more info on equivalance of educational qualifications, try out this site:

            ^ as far as I know - yes... esp. if you're considering the P.Eng. designation.

              I know a number of peopel who were educated in US are working in Canada now, architects, MBAs, software developers. I dont think its that big of a deal.

                    if u have an engineering degree from a recognized university in the states, u won't have to re-do any schooling or anything like that... all you'll have to do is write some sort of exam depending on which province you wanto practice as an engineer in...other than that there should be no problem

                      Is anyone here who is a Chemical Engg. or have any other Engg. background so that I can talk to them?
