Fort McMurray Branch

Message from the Chair

Welcome to the Fort McMurray Branch page, representing the Fort McMurray Regional APEGA members.

The Branch Executive team strive to be the members' voice to APEGA and APEGA's voice in our community. Together we accomplish it providing professional development opportunities, to help expand networks among members. Together we have fun social events to help foster a sense of community within our professions and network. Together we inspire the engineers and geoscientists of tomorrow when support educational events such as science nights and Science Olympics.  Together we increase understanding and awareness of professionalism and ethics in the university outreach program to first-year engineering students at Keyano College.

We are part of the community; we are part of protecting our peoples and our community. This year (2020) we are proud to celebrate – A Century Well Built.
