What Council Can and Cannot Do

As Alberta's engineering and geoscience regulatory body, APEGA exists to protect the public. Through our self-regulatory structure, APEGA Council has been entrusted by the Government of Alberta to ensure our members fulfill that mandate—this added responsibility is what distinguishes APEGA Council from a typical board of directors.
