Becoming Licensed

Registration is a critical component of APEGA’s service to the public interest. With thousands of applicants each year, we protect public safety by licensing only qualified, competent, and ethical individuals to practice engineering or geoscience in Alberta. Albertans trust us to keep them safe. APEGA’s Registration Department works collaboratively with our Board of Examiners to establish admission standards, policies, and processes. We also review applications to ensure fair and objective decisions. We know applicants are pursuing a life-changing transition. It’s a big deal, and we get that. We treat our potential

registrants with respect. We honour their needs and dreams by processing their applications honestly, fairly, and as promptly as possible, while maintaining the necessary standards to build a safe and resilient Alberta. Many of our applicants are from outside Canada, and APEGA is committed to eliminating barriers for these internationally trained applicants. We are the only engineering and geoscience regulator in Canada to have a full-time International Qualifications Officer solely focused on outreach and support for foreign professionals seeking licensure.
