ECO Canada’s Environmental Professional Designations:

Recognizing Excellence and Inspiring Leadership

ECO Canada has been working towards advancing the careers of environmental professionals for over 30 years. In today’s competitive job market, having a recognized designation can set you apart from other candidates.

“Being an EPt has been wonderful for my career. I work with many people who have other designations (P.Bio, APEGA), and it’s very common to be designated where I live. There’s no reason someone shouldn’t be designated.” —Stephanie B., EPt since 2020

“My EPt designation, followed by the EP® designation, allowed me to join the environmental professional’s family in Canada for the last 10 years. My network was expanded by attending events, webinars, and the mentorship program.” — Zhongzhi C., EP since 2016
