Annual Report 2019


Regulatory Highlights

A key aspect of being the largest self- regulatory body in Western Canada is always looking ahead and scanning the horizon. APEGA must maintain the trust, relevance, and confidence Albertans have placed in us.

We must anticipate change, seek solutions, and find ways to improve our regulatory approaches. We’re pleased to share a few of those achievements with you.

The Engineering and Geoscience Professions Act is the joint legislation for APEGA and the Association of Science and Engineering Technology Professionals of Alberta (ASET). The Act has not been significantly updated for nearly 40 years. In that time, the practice of the professions has significantly changed, as has business, industry, and society. In 2014, APEGA began a multi-year review of the legislation, which included consultations with registrants, permit- holding companies, the Government of Alberta, ASET, and other stakeholders. In March 2019, after conversations with ASET, both parties agreed to 163 of 172 recommendations, which we sent as a joint submission to the Government of Alberta. LEGISLATIVE REVIEW
