Licence Waiver



Annual fees for members are split into two portions; membership fee and licence fee. You are eligible to apply for a licence waiver if you are retired or not working in Saskatchewan in one of these situations as follows:

a) not residing in Saskatchewan and not practicing engineering or geoscience on projects or properties located in Saskatchewan; or

b) residing in Saskatchewan, not practicing engineering or geoscience in Saskatchewan and unemployed (not working at any job whatsoever); or

c) Any member, regardless of place of residence:
       - pursuing full-time studies at an educational institution;
       - on maternity, paternity or parental leave;
       - away from the work force to raise a family or provide elder care;
       - retired and not eligible for Life Membership;
       - on disability leave.

How to reinstate your licence if need be:

If you are granted a licence waiver and sometime later during the year you return to work or obtain engineering or geoscience work on projects or properties located in Saskatchewan, then you shall advise APEGS and pay the appropriate, prorated licence fee. Call the APEGS office or email us at apegs@apegs.ca and we will create the appropriate annual dues notice. You can pay it in one of three ways: by credit card in your On-Line Profile, credit card number provided over the phone, mail a cheque. Your licence is not reinstated until payment is received.

You are not eligible for a licence waiver if:

a) Your circumstances are not listed above;

b) You are resident in Saskatchewan, are employed (including non-engineering/geoscience jobs) and are registered in Saskatchewan only, regardless of the location of your workplace;

c) You are an Official Representative for a Certificate of Authorization (C of A) and there is no other Official Rep for the C of A that is licenced;

d) You are a Temporary Licensee.

Retroactive Remission of Licence Fee

There are some members who qualify for a licence waiver who are also eligible for retroactive remission of the licence fee upon written request to APEGS, and they are as follows:
- residing in Saskatchewan, not practicing engineering or geoscience in Saskatchewan and unemployed (not working at any job whatsoever); or
- any member, regardless of place of residence:
       - pursuing full-time studies at an educational institution;
       - on maternity, paternity or parental leave;
       - away from the work force to raise a family or provide elder care;
       - retired and not eligible for Life Membership;
       - on disability leave.
(Any circumstance not listed here are not eligible for retroactive remission of the licence fee).

Retroactive remission may be granted for the licence fee applicable to the previous calendar year only. Retroactive remission for a waiver of the licence fee will only be considered for durations of three consecutive months or longer. The three consecutive months do not have to occur all in the same calendar year.

If you are eligible for retroactive remission of licence fee, a credit will be applied to your account (to be used toward future annual fees). A refund will be issued only if you discontinue membership. The refund would be granted to the person / company who paid the licence fee.

Example of how retroactive remission of licence fee works

Let's say Jane is a professional member and starts her maternity leave on May 15. Jane had already payed full fees for the year (membership and licence fee) by December 31, the previous year. In November, Jane will receive her annual renewal notice to pay her fees for the next year. Jane will apply for a licence waiver for the next year and request retroactive remission of her licence fee for June to December in the current yera as a result of her maternity leave. Retroactive remission of the licence fee can only be granted based on what has already occurred (not based on future or planned events). Jane therefore applies for the retroactive remission when she receives her renewal for the upcoming year.

Upon her return to work (assuming that is one year later on May 15), Jane will call the APEGS office to inform us that she has returned to work and she will be sent a dues notice for May to December (prorated) for the fees due the year she has returned to work. Fees are to be paid within six weeks.
 
In summary, here are the actions that Jane needs to take. Jane has already paid fees for the entire year in the year that she starts maternity leave. While on maternity leave, she will receive her renewal notice. She does three things at that time (before December 31). The first two things can be submitted together:
  1. Jane submits the licence waiver application / declaration for the upcoming year by mail, fax or email to apegs@apegs.ca, and
  2. Jane sends a request by mail, fax or email to apegs@apegs.ca that states "I am requesting retroactive remission of my licence fee for the previous June to December because I was on maternity leave".
  3. Jane pays the $89.25 membership fee (includes GST) for the upcoming year. Payment options are shown on the Info Sheet and the licence waiver application / declaration that came with her dues notice. The licence waiver will not be approved or processed until payment is received. She will receive a credit on her account for the prorated licence fee for June to December ($212.92 plus GST = $223.57).
When Jane returns to work (assuming that is May 15), she calls the APEGS office and tells us that she has returned to work. APEGS will send her a dues notice for the prorated licence fee for May to December ($243.33 plus GST = $255.50). A "Consolidated Dues Statement" will be attached which shows the credit on her account from the previous years licence fee ($223.57), so she owes only $31.93. This amount needs to be paid within six weeks.
