Regulating the professions. Protecting the public.
The Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan (APEGS) licenses and regulates approximately 15,000 engineering and geoscience professionals in the public interest in accordance with The Engineering and Geoscience Professions Act. Self-regulation recognizes that those in the engineering and geoscience professions are in the best position to assess the qualifications, competence, and conduct of those who practice engineering and geoscience in Saskatchewan.
APEGS sets high admission standards for qualified engineers and geoscientists to become licensed professionals in Saskatchewan. To remain proficient in protecting the public, geoscience and engineering license holders are committed to ongoing professional development and guided by the geoscience and engineering Code of Ethics.
APEGS also investigates allegations of professional incompetence or professional misconduct of members and takes appropriate disciplinary action. In addition to regulating the professions, APEGS prevents the illegal practice of engineering and geoscience by unlicensed individuals.
