APEGS is the self-governing organization responsible to the people of Saskatchewan for licensing engineers and geoscientists in the province, and for regulating the practice of these professions in the public interest. Council is the governing body of APEGS and is accountable for administering the affairs of the Association and the requirements of The Engineering and Geoscience Professions Act. Council also brings proposals to the government to ensure that the public interest remains protected as the practice of engineering and geoscience change. The majority of Council members are elected by the members of APEGS.
Council meets five or six times a year to govern the affairs and business of the Association.
