APEGA Annual Report Available for Download

In a difficult Alberta economy, APEGA met complex challenges last year by sharpening its focus on becoming a more effective and efficient regulator, the organization's leaders say in the APEGA Annual Report 2016: Strengthening Our Foundation, now available for download. The report will be presented to the Government of Alberta (GOA) and is part of the agenda package of the APEGA Annual General Meeting, to be held Friday, April 28, in Calgary.

"The story of 2016 is about facing the worst economic times in Alberta in a generation, without ignoring the challenges of sustaining the privilege of effective self-regulation that serves the public interest," APEGA President Dr. Steve E. Hrudey, P.Eng., said in the report. "APEGA must be capable of weathering continued change for the foreseeable future."

Said then-Interim CEO Heidi Yang., P.Eng., now APEGA's Chief Operating Officer: "We made a fundamental shift in our approach to what we do, how we do it, and how we allocate resources. We decided to continue investing heavily in becoming a better regulator. We've made cuts in other areas, found new efficiencies, and changed our budgeting approach."
