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.
This past April, amid a global health emergency, collapsing oil prices, and a strained economy, APEGA welcomed its 101st president. From the very first days of his term, John Van der Put, P.Eng., has been paving his own way—out of necessity. He’s the first president in the association’s history to take the helm during a pandemic.

As we move through our new normal, the demands on working parents are at an all-time high. The line that separates work and home life is blurred at a time when maintaining that balance has never been more important.
As Albertans continue to work from home to help flatten the COVID-19 curve, professionals are forced to find new ways to connect to keep the economy moving. However, this change in how we communicate also creates new opportunities for professional engineers and geoscientists to build stronger connections with each other and help nurture the next generation of self-regulated professionals.

Movers & Shakers
What do you do when you’ve reached the summit of your profession? You keep going.
As communities around the world celebrated International Women’s Day this year, Ania Ulrich, P.Eng., PhD, had an extra reason to hold her head high: Women’s Initiative Edmonton was presenting the 2019 Women’s Leadership Award—and her name was on it.
Few people embody the diverse nature of engineering research as much as the 2019 recipient of the Centennial Leadership Summit Award does.
