They are sometimes called the hidden professions because unlike your doctor, dentist, veterinarian, lawyer or accountant, you may never directly require the services of a professional engineer and/or geoscientist. But every time you ﬂick on a light switch, turn on a tap, ride in an elevator, use a telephone, turn the key in the ignition, drive on a road, fuel your vehicle or heat your home, you can do so in large part because of the research and applied science knowledge of engineers and/or geoscientists.
APEGA AND ITS MEMBERS
APEGA is a self-governing association responsible to the people of Alberta through licensure of professional engineers and/or geoscientists. APEGA members are the people who, by doing their jobs, generate $9 billion in annual revenues and create thousands of jobs.
APEGA keeps an ongoing set of statistics as to the number of members, permit holders and other categories such and members-in-training and examinees. Click here to see comparisons of our membership from one year to another.
APEGA's Searchable Membership Register is provided as a service to Association members and the public. This is intended to help identify the professional status of APEGA members.
Each permit holder's number is shown, followed by their "practice designation" indicating which profession(s) the permit holder may practice, and includes the name of the professional member(s) responsible for that practice.
When you do need an engineer and/or geoscientist, APEGA can help you to determine how to select a consultant.
