2018 Member Dues Increases

On November 30, APEGA Council approved a dues increase of $32 for Professional Engineers, Professional Geoscientists, and Professional Licensees. Dues for these Members will be $392 plus GST in 2018, up from $360 plus GST in 2017. An increase will also be reflected in other membership categories. Read below and our news item to learn more.

As part of becoming a stronger regulator, APEGA must be able to address risks to successfully serve its Members, the professions, and the public.

Council directed APEGA to create a regulatory risk-management reserve following a thorough risk assessment. This reserve will solely support mitigating regulatory risks. No portion of the increase is being used to fund operations. For 2018, the entire $32 increase will fund this new reserve.

Furthermore, Council passed a motion for an additional one-year extension to APEGA’s dues reduction for unemployed Members. If they remain unemployed, Members who are currently paying reduced dues can apply for an extension in 2018.
