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.

To ensure our regulatory oversight remains comprehensive so we can continue protecting Albertans from unethical and unlicensed practice, APEGA Council made the difficult decision to increase registrant and permit holder dues for a second year, effective July 2024. Read more

Annual Dues

Your invoice will be available on your myAPEGA account 30 days before your anniversary date. As of August 2021, APEGA no longer sends invoices through the mail.

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.

As of August 2021, all licensed professionals must complete the annual declaration as part of their membership renewal.

Before Council’s difficult decision to increase dues, APEGA curtailed costs and sought greater efficiencies and additional revenues. Your annual dues not only allow you to practise, but they also support APEGA’s regulatory work, which ensures the protection of the public and the sustainability of the professions.

Multiple Jurisdictions

Members practising in multiple jurisdictions can maintain their APEGA licence by paying their annual dues and completing their continuing professional development requirements.

Permit Holders

Annual Dues

Permit holder dues are calculated using a base rate of $550 and multiplied by the square root of the total number of members working under the permit holder’s Permit to Practice.

Effective July 1, 2024, the permit holder base rate is increasing to $600. Read more

Permit holder dues = $550 x number of members* + GST

* Active member types included in the calculation are:

  • practising and restricted licensed professionals: professional members, professional licensees, licensees
  • non-practising: provisional licensees, members-in-training, exam candidates

Through myAPEGA, a permit renewal notification will be sent to the senior officer, as well as 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 holder'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 senior officer 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 senior officer. Dues must be paid by the permit expiration date, or the permit is at risk of cancellation.

Sole Practitioners

APEGA has a simplified permit holder dues calculation for sole practitioners. If you are eligible, the sole practitioner flat rate of $300 + GST will automatically be applied at the time of invoicing, effective July 1, 2023. You do not need to submit a request. You can check your account by logging in to myAPEGA.

For APEGA’s billing purposes, a sole practitioner is defined as:

  • a permit holder for which the senior officer 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 senior officer is not an APEGA member, and the Responsible Member is the only APEGA member listed on the permit

Verification of Members

APEGA performs random audits of permit holders to verify the number of APEGA members being reported as working under the Permit to Practice. Permit holders will be required to work with APEGA to confirm the information.

Reinstatement Fees

Cancelling and reinstating permit holders is a licensing responsibility requiring regulatory effort and diligence. Cancellations and reinstatements can only be authorized by Council at one of its four annual meetings.
