In Ontario, and all other Canadian provinces, the title "Engineer" is protected by law and any non-licensed individual or company using the title is committing a legal offense, and can get fined.
Despite this many companies and individuals add engineer into job titles, the most common example is "Software Engineer" but I've seen many examples. I've never actually heard of anyone getting into legal trouble for it so I'm not sure the law is enforced.
The advise I've seen in other questions is that you should put the exact title on your resume that the company has given you, but I don't feel comfortable doing that in the case of a regulated word that I don't meet the legal requirements for.
What would be the best way to handle putting the title on a resume, changing it to an approximate title or keep it the same?
