Engineering and Geoscience Professions Act
The Government of Alberta uses self-governance to regulate the engineering and geoscience professions. This means that professional engineers and geoscientists, instead of a government organization, regulate the professions.
It is through the Engineering and Geoscience Professions Act (EGP Act) that the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta (APEGA) was created. APEGA is the regulator that makes sure engineering and geoscience professionals in Alberta carry out their work according to the requirements in the Act.
