Member & Permit Holder Dues | APEGA

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.


Annual Dues

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.

Dues Reduction

Certain designations and situations are eligible for a dues reduction.

Multiple Jurisdictions

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

Annual Dues

Effective July 1, 2017, the new fee schedule for Permit Holders employing six or more APEGA members is:

Permit Holder Dues = $500 x √# of Members Employed + GST

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.
