APEGA Application Decisions and Resubmitting Your Application

Every APEGA application is reviewed by the Board of Examiners (BOE). They will decide one of three outcomes for your registration or enrolment:

  • Approve
  • Defer approval
  • Refuse

APEGA will email you the decision by the end of the following month after the BOE meeting.

Applications that do not meet the minimum application requirements will be declined by APEGA staff and will not proceed to BOE review. 

Decisions Outcomes

If Your Application is Approved

If the Board of Examiners decides to approve your application, you should read the Members & Permit Holders section of our website.

We've also collected the most important pages to review as a new Member on one page, such as how to pay dues and your benefits and responsibilities as a Member.

If Your Application is Deferred

If the Board of Examiners decides that your application does not meet the academic or experience requirements, your application may be deferred.

The BOE will make clear in your letter what you are missing, and you will have 2 years after your letter was printed to complete the missing requirements.

If your application has been refused by the Board of Examiners, you may apply for reconsideration or reassessment.

You also have the option to appeal the decision to the Appeal Board by submitting a Request for Appeal to the Registrar & CEO within 30 days of receiving your notice of refusal.
