If you are currently a professional engineer, professional geoscientist, engineer-in-training, geoscientist-in-training, provisional licensee, engineering licensee (or equivalent such as limited member or professional licensee), or geoscience licensee (or equivalent such as limited member or professional licensee) in good standing elsewhere in Canada, or your registration lapsed less than three months ago, you can apply through a simplified process known as Inter-Association Mobility.
Please Note: Provisional licensee signifies that the person has met all of the requirements for professional registration except for either the Canadian work experience or the language requirement. APEGS does not have a provisional licensee registration category. The mobility application type you are eligible for with APEGS is either engineer-in-training or geoscientist-in-training.
If you have a “non-practicing” status, then you are not eligible for Inter-Association Mobility. However, if you went to non-practicing status 3 months ago or less, then you can apply through inter-association mobility.
If you are registered as a professional engineer or professional geoscientist elsewhere in Canada, and are in good standing, then you can apply in the Inter-Association Mobility – Professional Member category.
If you are registered as an engineer-in-training, geoscientist-in-training or provisional licensee elsewhere in Canada, and are in good standing, then you can apply in the Inter-Association Mobility – Member-in-Training category.
If you are registered as an engineering licensee or geoscience licensee elsewhere in Canada, and are in good standing, then you can apply in the Inter-Association Mobility Engineering or Geoscience Licensee category.
Please Note: Equivalent titles in other jurisdictions include limited member and professional licensee. Professional Technologists from Alberta may also be eligible.
Inter-Association Mobility from Saskatchewan to Other Provinces
Professional engineers and geoscientists are entitled to registration in other jurisdictions of Canada under the Canada Free Trade Agreement, without being re-assessed. For issues with mobility applications to other jurisdictions, please Contact Us, or the provincial Labour Mobility office.
Eligibility for mobility as a member-in-training varies by province. Please contact the Regulator you wish to apply to for more information. The policies and practices of other jurisdictions are outside the control of APEGS.
Eligibility for mobility as an engineering licensee or geoscience licensee (or equivalent) depends upon whether the equivalent registration category exists in the other jurisdiction. Please contact the Regulator you wish to apply to for more information.
Temporary Licensees are not eligible for mobility to other jurisdictions.
