APEGS only requires a mentor form if your supervisor is not a P.Geo or would not be considered a professional geoscientist in the country where you obtained your experience. When Filling out Experience Reporting Forms:

  • Always use the most recent version of the reporting form (download date is located below each attachment). 
  • Use the "Self-Check List" to ensure that your report is completed properly. 


The experience reporting form was created in MicroSoft Word 2003. To use the form: open it; save it to your computer; close it; and re-open it. It should open in Microsoft Word. The hyperlinks and other features in the forms should then be functional. 

Once your Report(s) has been submitted:

  • We require one to three months from the time forms are received and completed in full to complete the review.
  • If there are problems with your report(s), we will contact you.


We send experience results in a letter sent by regular mail, they will not be provided over the phone or by e-mail.  
Please do not contact the APEGS office for experience resultsThey are sent by mail only.  You can also check experience report and application status in your On-Line Profile under My Applications by clicking "Login" in the top right corner.
