Professional Engineers report unlicensed engineer

Professional Engineers report unlicensed engineer

TORONTO — The Ontario Superior Court of Justice in Toronto has ordered Amr Adel Mousta Robah of Ontario to refrain from representing himself as a professional engineer.

The court order, issued on May 28, prohibits Robah from engaging in the practice of professional engineering, offering engineering services to the public, using the title of “professional engineer” as an occupational or business designation, and making or using an engineering seal, without an engineering licence, stated a release.

The Court also ordered Robah to pay costs of over $88,000 to Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO).

PEO, the regulating body for professional engineering in the province, sought the order after Robah continued to represent himself as an engineer and misuse engineers’ seals throughout the Greater Toronto Area following a 2018 conviction for similar violations of the Professional Engineers Act.

In December 2018, Robah pleaded guilty before the Ontario Court of Justice for misusing an engineer’s seal on six occasions contrary to the act. On Dec. 6, 2018, Robah signed an acknowledgement, agreement and undertaking that also stated that until he obtains a licence or temporary licence from PEO under the act, he will not represent himself as an engineer. Robah and his company were fined $27,500.

Following the conviction, Robah continued to hold himself out to the public as a professional engineer, including by using “Eng.” after his name to imply he was qualified to practise engineering. Additionally, Robah submitted municipal permit applications purportedly stamped with the seals of two professional engineers without their knowledge or consent.

Robah is a senior project manager at YEJ Studio + Consulting Inc. and is registered with the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing as a Building Code Identification Number holder. This authorization does not permit Robah to act as or hold himself out to act as a licensed engineer pursuant to the act, the PEO explained. Robah has never held a licence, temporary licence, limited licence, provisional licence or certificate of authorization.

PEO continues to investigate the matter and asks anyone who has dealt with Robah in the previous 18 months and observed that he purported to be an engineer to contact PEO’s enforcement hotline at 416-840-1444 or 1-800-339-3716 ext. 1444, or by email at

Emily Fraser of the Toronto law firm Polley Faith LLP represented PEO on the matter.
