Annual Report 2019


“First and foremost, APEGA is a regulatory agency of the Government of Alberta. We— all 72,000 members, 4,600 permit-holding companies, and APEGA staff—have a duty to protect the public.”

APEGA’s new strategic plan released in 2019, Building a Safe and Resilient Alberta , is truly one of the best such documents I’ve ever seen. It establishes two major strategic priorities for APEGA: a strong commitment to Regulatory Excellence and maintaining the Trust and Relevance of our stakeholders. Underpinning all of this is a third pillar, Performance Culture , with a focus on collaboration among membership and staff. Of course, a strategic plan must be operationalized to be effective. That’s why staff continuously improves APEGA’s business plan, identifying what constitutes success by setting specific objectives for each piece of the operation. Council rose to the occasion, too. Today’s APEGA Council better understands the governance function of oversight and direction. To all those who served as

Councillors over the past several years, thank you for helping make self-regulation work well for Albertans. Most Albertans still don’t know who we are, what we do, or why we do it! As part of our upcoming 2020 centennial, we will share with Albertans how we’ve served the public welfare for one hundred years—a century well built. We will also show them how engineering and geoscience touch every aspect of their lives. We—APEGA Council, staff, and our more than 2,200 volunteers— will continue to protect the public for the next century by building a safe and resilient Alberta. George Eynon, P.Geo., FGC, FEC (Hon.)
