If I get my engineering degree in Canada am I able to practice engineering in other parts of the world?

I currently live in the US but am going to go to college in Canada. If I get my engineering degree in Canada am I able to practice engineering in other parts of the world, or does it depend on the school?

As an engineer in a global company, I can say that I hire people from all over the world and your situation would not present a problem.  What might matter, depending on your specific field, is whether you need any local certifications (like PE) to work in the area you choose.  I imagine the answer to this could vary from company to company.  I wish you well and good luck!
