Connecting digitally or over the phone during this evolving public health situation is crucial now more than ever. To support this for our members, APEGA is temporarily waiving the mentoring fee for mentees during the application process. For more information, please contact us at [email protected].
Apply for Mentoring
Active APEGA members in good standing are eligible to participate in the mentoring program. Members interested in participating in the one-year program are required to submit an online application and complete orientation online in order to access our matching software.
Mentors must be an APEGA professional member or life member in order to be eligible.

Do I Qualify As a Mentor?
One question we receive from members is how we determine if you qualify to be a mentor. It really is a personal decision where you believe you have expertise in an area or multiple areas that you feel might be of benefit to other members. If you are unsure, email us at [email protected], or call our Edmonton office and we'll assist you in making that decision.
Mentor Liability Coverage
As an APEGA member in good standing, your secondary professional liability insurance covers you as a mentor helping another less-experienced individual develop specific skills and knowledge that will enhance the individual’s professional and personal growth. For more information, check out APEGA's secondary professional liability insurance page.
More Than One Partnership
Mentors are able to accept up to three mentees that they can mentor at a time.
Mentees are only able to select one mentor using the software. If mentees wish to request more than one mentor, please contact the Mentoring Coordinator at [email protected], or call our Edmonton office.
Standards for Participation
It is expected that members conduct themselves professionally while in the program and maintain their APEGA membership. At the discretion of APEGA, members may be suspended from the program if their APEGA membership becomes inactive for any reason, or they are no longer in good standing with APEGA.
