APEGS’ Public Accountability Advisory Group – Call for Public Representatives

July 8th, 2024

On May 4, 2024, the purposes of the Equity and Diversity and Environment and Sustainability committees were merged to form the Public Accountability Advisory Group. The group is comprised of licensed engineers and geoscientists and public representatives who will oversee our efforts to monitor and respond to current and emerging issues of potential public interest, including but not limited to environment and sustainability, equity and diversity, reconciliation with Indigenous peoples, and other issues. The output of the work of the group will help inform APEGS’ strategic plan.

The purpose of the advisory group is to fulfill APEGS’ mandate to license and regulate the practices of professional engineering and professional geoscience in a manner that upholds public confidence in the profession by:

  • Monitoring current trends and issues of potential opportunity or concern for the public to determine whether they may be relevant to APEGS, engineers and geoscientists.
  • Recommend responses and actions regarding relevant trends and issues to minimize risk to the public.
  • Assist APEGS in the facilitation of learning opportunities for engineers and geoscientists that raise awareness in areas of public concern and encourage incorporation into professional practice.
  • Review and make recommendations on the policies and practices of APEGS to help ensure risk to the public is minimized in the practice of professional engineering and practice of professional geoscience.

To ensure the appropriate level of public voice, APEGS is seeking applications from members of the public, who reside in Saskatchewan and are not engineers or geoscientists, to serve on the advisory group for a maximum three-year term starting October 2024. There are currently two positions available.


  • The advisory group is scheduled to meet twice a year for approximately three hours. One meeting may be in-person but will have a virtual option available.
  • Come prepared to participate in assigned advisory group activities and deliberations.

All interested members of the public are encouraged to submit a resume to and briefly explain why you are interested in this opportunity. Submissions will be accepted until Friday, August 16, 2024, at 5:00 pm CST.
