A message from the Registrar & CEO

Hello everyone,

We are excited to announce that our new portal, myAPEGA, is here! Planning for myAPEGA started in 2018 with a survey to our members and permit holders. Taking your feedback to heart, we designed this new portal to improve your experience and make it easier to deliver your regulatory requirements.

myAPEGA will facilitate the maintenance of your contact information, the completion of your annual renewal, and the understanding of your regulatory responsibilities. From myAPEGA, you can easily purchase stamps and certificates, eliminating the current manual processes and improving the experience and efficiency.

For our permit holders, you will be able to share the responsibility of maintaining your permit with other individuals in your company. The company dashboard provides a single summary of your critical information, enabling you to monitor the status of your permit.

I'm looking forward to sharing this exciting milestone with you. At your next renewal, you will be able to complete the annual declaration, submit your payment, and track your continuing professional development hours easily and quickly within myAPEGA. When you do, let us know what you think of the new tool by emailing us at [email protected].

Thank you,

Jay Nagendran, P.Eng., FCAE, ICD.D, FEC, FGC (Hon.)
APEGA Registrar & CEO

    Previous Registrar & CEO Updates

  • We asked, you answered

    We asked you how APEGA could improve your membership experience. You told us that our Member Self-Service Centre (MSSC) and the Company Self-Service Centre (CSSC) portals were out of date and did not always provide you with the tools and resources needed to help track and manage your professional obligations.

    As a result of your feedback, we are making important changes. In 2021, we will be consolidating functions of the MSSC and the CSSC into a single modern portal called myAPEGA. Our goal with myAPEGA is to provide you with easy access to the information you need, when you need it, and in a format that helps you make effective decisions about your practice.

    As APEGA registrants and permit holders, you are part of an exclusive community with important responsibilities in helping to keep Alberta safe and resilient. This year we are very proud to be delivering you enhanced tools that will make it easier for you to understand and manage these professional obligations.

Upcoming changes to the CPD Program

APEGA is moving to a new system for recording and submitting continuing professional development (CPD) activities. While the CPD requirements are not changed, how you report your activities is.

The CPD Program is mandatory under the Engineering and Geoscience Professions Act.

Find out more about the CPD Program

Instead of providing summary hours of all the CPD activities you completed during your reporting period, you will record detailed activities and hours right into the system. This will allow for better support and tracking for meeting the CPD practice standard and maintaining your good-standing status. You are encouraged to add your CPD activities as you complete them throughout the reporting period and upload supporting documents.

When myAPEGA launches, you will enter your summary CPD hours by category one final time during your next membership renewal. Then, as your next reporting period starts, you will be able to record individual activities as they happen.

The new CPD tool allows you to:

  • view a CPD dashboard with summary information, including practising status and current CPD compliance status
  • easily determine hours earned, claimed, carried forward, and expiring for each activity category
  • track your CPD progress throughout the year and see how many hours you need to complete by the end of the reporting period
  • record and track your activity-based hours in a single spot as you earn them
  • upload and store supporting documents for all CPD hours earned
  • customize your submission or allow myAPEGA to submit your hours automatically at the end of the year
  • view, filter, and download your CPD history

What is changing?

CPD Dashboard
You will have access to a dashboard that displays your reporting period, the number of CPD hours and categories needed in the current year to meet the program requirements, hours earned for each category, your practising status, and the number of days remaining before your submission date. If you have been approved for special consideration, your dashboard will reflect your modified CPD requirements.

Increased CPD History
You will be able to view your previously submitted CPD periods for the last five years download a PDF version of your complete CPD history.

Track Your Detailed CPD Activities
You can enter detailed activities directly into myAPEGA as you earn them using your computer or mobile device. As you enter your earned CPD hours, the system will calculate what you can claim or carry forward to subsequent reporting periods.

Attach Your Supporting Documents
As you submit activities, you can upload supporting documents from any device and manage them for each reported activity. Attaching supporting documents throughout the year enables you to keep all your supporting documents in one place.

CPD Submission
At the end of your annual reporting period, you will have 60 days to submit your CPD hours. The system will notify you when your submission window has opened and you can choose how your hours are submitted. If after 30 days you have not submitted your CPD hours, your reported hours will be submitted automatically to ensure you remain in compliance with the CPD program. You will be notified once your hours are submitted. When your submission window has closed, you will be unable to add or edit activities for that reporting period.
