APEGS Awards

January 30th, 2023

The APEGS Awards highlight Saskatchewan engineers and geoscientists for their contributions to the public and the professions. They showcase and recognize professional excellence and exemplary competence and conduct. This helps to foster professional excellence among members and raise awareness of the role of APEGS in protecting the public.

Five engineering and geoscience awards are being presented, as well as an award for a non-engineer/geoscientist (or team) that recognizes projects or achievements in the professions*. The awards are being presented at a banquet on March 2 as part of Engineering and Geoscience Week. Click here for more information about the banquet and to register.
