Fort McMurray Branch

Message from the Chair

Welcome to the Fort McMurray Branch page, representing Members in a place of innovation and creativity that thousands call home.

The Fort McMurray Branch is constantly working towards the career enhancement of its Members and encouraging others to apply for APEGA licensure. We accomplish this through professional development and by continuing to enhance and promote the image of the professions in our community.

The Branch also engages K-12 students in science, technology, engineering, and math – encouraging them to consider careers in engineering and geoscience. 

We also provide a university outreach program to first-year engineering students, which helps increase their understanding and awareness of professionalism and ethics.
