Good Character & Reputation

To apply for an APEGA licence, you must be of good character and reputation. Your application includes a declaration form with the below questions.

Have you ever been found guilty of or is there an outstanding judgement against you for:

  • unprofessional conduct or unskilled practice by a professional regulatory organization or agency?
  • an offence under the Engineering and Geoscience Professions Act or equivalent legislation in other jurisdictions?
  • any criminal offence?
  • negligence due to unskilled practice of the professions in any civil actions made against you?

Answering yes to a question may not disqualify you from applying. However, you will need to explain the circumstances and upload supporting documentation during the character declaration part of your application. A false statement or misrepresentation may disqualify you from registration or initiate an investigation.
