Digital Signatures

The digital signature held by members of the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta (APEGA) confirms the civic identity and professional designation of its members at the time of signing. It serves as proof that the signer is in good standing and has the right to practice in the province of Alberta, in addition to ensuring the integrity of the signed documents and preventing their falsification.

APEGA Digital Signatures are administered by Notarius.
