APEGA Strategic Plan


This strategic plan reinforces the mission and vision of APEGA. It sets long-term goals in being a leader in self-regulation while protecting the public. It stresses the importance of being relevant to our members, mindful of changes affecting our professions, and accountable to delivering on APEGA’s priorities.

The identified goals and strategies are a road map to guide the organization for years to come. The guidance a strategic plan provides is crucial, particularly for regulatory bodies, as it supports governing at the highest level of excellence.

Translating strategy into execution will be the work of all leaders at APEGA, requiring an unwavering commitment to our priorities, and ongoing collaboration with Council and our many stakeholders.

APEGA 2017-2021 The Journey Towards Regulatory Excellence

APEGA 5-Year Journey Towards Regulatory Excellence_cover-thumb

As we look back on the last five years, APEGA has made tremendous progress in its journey to build an organization that embodies the principles of modern regulation and the protection of public safety.

In many cases, this has meant taking a risk-based regulatory approach to our activities across the organization—ensuring APEGA’s work is the “right touch at the right time.” Imperative to our success is an approach that is both proactive (education, standards, guidelines, bulletins) and reactive (investigation, compliance, discipline). It’s made possible through incredible collaboration between regulatory departments, leaders, and staff throughout APEGA.

Through this highly integrated approach, we’re able to drive efficiency into our work that is firm, fair, and predictable—delivering even more value to our members.

APEGA’s Position on ASET’s Scope of Practice Proposals


In 2014, APEGA began a legislative review to modernize the Engineering and Geoscience Professions Act (the Act), which had its last major update in 1981. As the regulator of engineering and geoscience in Alberta, we need to ensure the Act continues to protect the public interest and reflect current business practices. Consultations with stakeholders, including the Association of Science and Engineering Technology Professionals of Alberta (ASET), have been ongoing since the legislative review began.

APEGA and ASET agree on some of the recommendations submitted to government as part of the legislative review. However, ASET has a divergent perspective on several critical areas, including scope of practice and joint regulation of professional technologists.
