2021 APEGA Annual Report

WHAT SUCCESS LOOKS LIKE We adopt relevant technologies and implement opportunities that increase organizational effectiveness.


In July, the Government of Alberta extended the expiry date of APEGA’s General Regulation by five years, to September 30, 2026. This important legislation was set to expire September 2021. The extension enables the self-regulation of the engineering and geoscience professions in Alberta to continue while we work with the provincial government to proclaim a modernized Engineering and Geoscience Professions Act .

APEGA Council is a diverse team of strategic thinkers who provide sound, visionary governance of our professions. Bringing their unique skills, experience, and knowledge to the table, these volunteers provide oversight, develop policy, and set APEGA’s future direction as a regulator. Council consists of 16 professional members and three public members. Membership changes each year, with one president-elect and typically four councillors elected each spring. What doesn’t change is Council’s mandate to protect public safety. Since APEGA was founded in 1920, the Government of Alberta has trusted our Council to regulate the engineering and geoscience professions through the Engineering and Geoscience Professions Act .

APEGA registrants voted in support of the extension in November 2020.

More than 9,700 licensed professionals, or 17 per cent of eligible voters, participated in the electronic vote. 97 per cent of votes cast supported the amendment.
