Legislative Review

APEGA’s legislative review is all about meeting the needs of the future. We hope to be better equipped than ever to protect the public interest in our second century, as we keep our self-regulatory system relevant and vital. We began the review of the Engineering and Geoscience Professions Act ( EGP Act ) and General Regulation in 2014. This resulted in a multi-year, deep dive into the legislation. In 2018, we concluded two critical phases of this ambitious project. The consulting phase and the submission phase—to the Government of Alberta (GoA)—are now complete. We also continued our conversation with the GoA and stakeholders, by creating a government relations program. Our ultimate objective is to obtain a modernized EGP Act . This has included continued conversations with our engineering and geoscience technology partners at the Association of Science & Engineering Technology Professionals of Alberta (ASET), elected officials, and various ministries and regulators. Also on our to-do list: aligning current APEGA bylaws with our proposed new legislation.
