Council

Council is APEGA's governing body. Members of Council set direction, develop policy, ensure resources, and provide oversight. You can find information about Council's authorities and responsibilities in the Engineering and Geoscience Professions Act. You may also want to review the Councillor Term & Duties for a more detailed list.

Council uses a governance model similar to a corporate board structure. This model uses committees, working groups, and task forces to carry out many of its duties.

Council meets quarterly, and its meeting minutes are available to the public. Committees and working groups usually meet once between each Council meeting.

Council is made up of 16 elected professional members, including a Council president, plus three appointed public members. At the end of all Council presidents’ terms, they are given a Honorary Life Membership award to recognize their year of service.

Engineers Canada and Geoscientists Canada directors attend Council meetings but do not sit as councillors. They are not involved in Council committee work, and they do not vote in Council meetings.
