Member & Permit Holder Dues
It is important that members and permit holders keep their information up to date with APEGA and pay their annual dues on time.
Your invoice will be available on your myAPEGA account 30 days before your anniversary date. Starting with the August 2021 renewals, APEGA will no longer mail invoices.
You have 30 days from the date of the invoice to submit your full payment to APEGA. If you are a new member, you will be invoiced for your first year's dues once your application is approved. Payment can be made online through myAPEGA or through online banking.
Membership dues must be paid annually or APEGA will cancel your licence.
Please note: Starting with the August 2021 renewals, all licensed professionals must complete the annual declaration as part of their membership renewal.
Certain designations and situations are eligible for a dues reduction.
Members practising in multiple jurisdictions can maintain their APEGA licence by paying their annual dues and completing their continuing professional development requirements.
2021 Annual Dues
|Members-in-Training and Examinees||$196|
|Life members||$98 (25% of Professional Member dues)|
The above dues do not include GST and are subject to change. Please pay the amount on your invoice. Payments are non-refundable.
How to Pay Your Annual Dues
The easiest and quickest way to pay is online! Log in to myAPEGA to pay by:
- American Express
If you want to pay in person, APEGA can only accept cheques. We do not accept cash payments, and we cannot process credit card or debit payments at our offices.
Permit holder dues are calculated using a base rate of $500 and multiplied by the square root of the total number of members working under the permit holder’s Permit to Practice.
Permit Holder Dues = $500 x √# of Members Employed + GST
Active member types included in the calculation are:
- Practicing and restricted licensed professionals: professional members, professional licensees, licensees
- Non-practicing: provisional licensees, members-in-training, exam candidates
Through myAPEGA, a permit renewal notification will be sent to the chief operating officer (COO), and individuals with access to the permit holder’s finance centre, 60 days prior to the permit’s expiration date.
The permit holder will be advised to update:
- its employee list
- any company contact information, including staff with myAPEGA permissions on the permit's myAPEGA page(s)
- its Responsible Member list
The permit holder has up to 30 days upon receiving the renewal notification to make these changes on the myAPEGA portal. After 30 days, the permit holder will be notified that the invoice has been issued and can be accessed in the myAPEGA portal for payment. The COO must complete the permit declaration as part of the renewal, before payment can be made.
Invoice amounts are final and will reflect the members listed on the permit at the time the invoice was issued. Any changes made after the invoice date will not be reflected in that year's dues.
Once the annual dues are paid for the permit, a new permit certificate will be sent to the COO. Dues must be paid by the permit expiration date, or the permit is at risk of cancellation.
Sole practitioners pay a flat rate of $250 + GST. If you are eligible, this rate will automatically be applied and reflected in your myAPEGA account at the time of invoicing.
For APEGA’s billing purposes, a sole practitioner is defined as:
- a permit holder for which the COO and the Responsible Member are the same person and, therefore, an APEGA member and the only member listed on the permit, or
- a permit holder for which the COO is not an APEGA member, and the Responsible Member is the only APEGA member listed on the permit
