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.
APEGA will mail you an invoice 30 days before your anniversary date. 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 the Member Self-Service Centre or through online banking.
Membership dues must be paid annually or APEGA will cancel your licence.
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.

How to Pay Your Annual Dues
The easiest and quickest way to pay is online! Log in to the Member Self-Service Centre 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:
- Practising & Restricted: professional members, professional licensees, licensees
- Non-Practising: provisional licensees, members-in-training, exam candidates
APEGA will send the permit renewal package to the Chief Operating Officer (COO) on file 60 days prior to the permit holder's renewal month. The permit holder will be sent:
- a letter communicating the instructions
- a Permit to Practice report, containing the current information on file with APEGA
A Permit Holder has up to 30 days upon receiving the renewal package to make changes to the number of members employed and any changes to their Responsible Members. These can be made in the Company Self-Service Centre (CSSC). Any changes to Responsible Members will be communicated with the affected members. After 30 days, the permit holder will be invoiced based on the number of members employed and any changes made to the list of employees after this date will not be included in the current invoice.
A live estimate of the company’s annual permit dues can be found in the CSSC at any time.
Once the permit annual dues are paid, a new permit certificate and confirmation package will be sent to the COO.
If the permit annual dues are not paid on the due date, notification will be sent regarding permit cancellation.

APEGA has simplified the permit holder dues calculation for sole practitioners. Effective July 1, 2019, sole practitioners will pay a flat rate of $250 + GST. If you are eligible, the new rate will automatically be applied. You do not need to submit a request. You can check your account in the Company Self-Service Centre.
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.
- 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.
