Professional Seals

Sealing, signing and dating (collectively referred to as “authentication”) of documents related to the practice of professional engineering or professional geoscience, is a requirement under The Engineering and Geoscience Professions Act and Bylaws.

The seal constitutes the distinctive mark of the professional. It certifies that its holder is a member of the Association and is licensed to practice professional engineering or professional geoscience within Saskatchewan.

Issue of Seals

Effective with approvals dated January 1, 2021 or later, all new licensees (i.e. members-in-training, professional members, restricted licensees and temporary licensees) will be issued electronic images of their professional seals, upon approval and payment of all associated registration fees. Be aware that an electronic image of the seal does not include a digital signature. If you wish to subscribe to a digital signature provider, APEGS has endorsed Notarius (see below).

If you do not currently have an electronic image of your seal, and would like one, please contact the APEGS office.

Physical seals will be issued on a request, cost recovery basis, including cost for postage, plus applicable taxes. To order, refer to the information under "Replacement Seals" below.

Replacement Seals

The cost for each replacement seal is $30 (GST included), plus postage. Call the APEGS office to order replacement stamps (23 mm self-inking or regular 43 mm, or both if you wish, at a cost of $30 each, plus postage). You can either provide a credit card number over the phone or we can create an invoice for you that can be mailed to you or paid in your On-Line Profile under Fee Payments. The seal will not be ordered until the invoice is paid.

Digital Signatures

Engineers and Geoscientists are increasingly using new technologies in their daily work. The documents they produce remain subject to high standards of reliability. Engineers and Geoscientists who wish to produce legally reliable digital documents in compliance with APEGS’s requirements, can now accomplish this task with CertifiO for Professionals - APEGS Digital Signature.

APEGS has endorsed Notarius to provide the APEGS Digital Signature to members.
