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.
To honour National Indigenous History month, we are featuring Connor Scheu, P.Eng., ally to women in APEGA's Women in APEGA advisory group and proud Metis person and advocate - he is a member of Engineers Canada's Indigenous Advisory Committee. "I believe that being raised Metis with some Indigenous values gave me an innate sense of societal good and a respect for nature and the Earth."
Nicole Imeson, P.L.(Eng.), is proud to be a voice amplifying the collective experience of women in male-dominated professions in her podcast the Glorious Ladies of Engineering. She explains engineering failures and what we can do better next time in her podcast Failurology. She's hoping to improve the profession, one episode at a time.
The anticipation is palpable as APEGA President Lisa Doig, P.Eng., speaks at the opening of a star-studded exhibit at TELUS World of Science - Edmonton. APEGA is the presenting sponsor of Apollo: When We Went to the Moon, which features interactive educational displays and artifacts from early space missions, including Apollo 11, the legendary spaceflight marked by the first-ever footfalls on our cratered sidekick.
On his tours, Diakiw joins Metis heritage to geoscience, speaking to the history of the land geologically and spiritually, as an absolute piece of who he is. "I see myself now as that connector, the bridge from the past to the present."
Following a member bylaw vote in November 2021 to accept the recommendations made by the Special Committee of Council on Nominations, APEGA's process for identifying Council candidates will be more transparent, beginning with the 2023 Council election nominations.
