Professional Member

This process applies to Professional Engineers, Professional Geoscientists, Engineering Licensees or Geoscience Licensees who were formerly members of APEGS.

  • If you resigned your membership before it expired, you will not have to pay a reinstatement fee.
  • If your membership ended because you did not pay your annual registration fees by the due date (January 31st of the year which they are for), then you must pay a reinstatement fee, as well as the pro-rated annual registration fees, to reinstate your membership.

If you are applying for reinstatement in the same year that your membership ended, then you do not have to submit a new application.

  1. Send an email to through our Contact Us page and indicate that you wish to reinstate your membership.
  2. An invoice will be posted to your online profile for pro-rated annual registration fees for the remainder of the year.
  3. After you have paid the annual registration fees, you will receive a certificate in the mail and an electronic image of your seal by email. If you ordered a physical stamp, it will be delivered within a few months (this may take slightly longer if you are located outside of Canada).
  4. Once you have paid your annual fees you are permitted to use the appropriate title.
  5. Your certificate may take several months to arrive. You do not need your certificate in your possession to start using one of the protected titles.

Please Note: You must you keep your APEGS profile information up to date, as APEGS will regularly need to contact you by both email and regular mail.
