The PEG Magazine, now yourPEG
The PEG is the official publication of APEGA, published online for members and other stakeholders. A weekly electronic newsletter called the ePEG complements The PEG.
The PEG has been a fixture of APEGA since our earliest days. It has taken many forms, aligning itself with the information-consumption trends we have seen in our readership and the publishing industry as a whole. Created originally as a newsletter, it transitioned to a newspaper in 1969 and then to a glossy magazine in 2010. In 2017, as magazine publishing as a whole transitioned to a more digital world, The PEG ceased print production and became a totally digital magazine, but still with a layout reminiscent of a magazine.
In our centennial year, we are reimagining The PEG once again, this time as a section of the APEGA website, called yourPEG. It’s still in the early stages, but we’re proud of its progression and the initial feedback we’ve received has been positive.
yourPEG will continue to feature news and articles about things our members care about, such as:
- APEGA's regulatory work on behalf of the public and members
- APEGA's services and benefits that support members and their practices
- APEGA's progress in meeting strategic goals set by APEGA Council
- APEGA's members and their volunteering and professional successes
We hope you’ll join us for yourPEG. See some our latest articles below, and bookmark this page to stay current with our latest news and stories from the world of engineering and geoscience.
In 2013, APEGA became one of the first regulatory bodies in Canada to employ a professional investigator to review complaints. Seven years after that modest start, that solo position has grown into a team of six investigators with more than 100 years of experience between them.
Having brought science and engineering to television, radio, and stages across North America for more than 40 years, Bob McDonald, host of CBC Radio's long-running Quirks and Quarks program, can rightfully say he's seen it all. Read more about his approach to science, engineering, and our energy future.
The work of professional engineers and geosciences is in demand around the world. You never know where your career might end up. For Calgarian Teresa Waddington, P.Eng., it was as a plant manager in Scotland.
On September 28, 2020, APEGA will host a webinar that celebrates APEGA's centennial and its future with internationally trained engineers and geoscientists, featuring speakers who were previously also internationally trained, including APEGA Compliance Manager Saumya (Sam) Barua, P.Eng.
