APEGA’s Appeal of Mihaly Decision Succeeds
A Court of Queen’s Bench Justice has upheld APEGA’s appeal of an Alberta Human Rights Commission (AHRC) tribunal decision in allegations made by Ladislav Mihaly. Madam Justice Ross also dismissed Mihaly’s cross-appeal.
Mihaly had complained to the AHRC alleging that by being asked to write confirmatory exams by the APEGA Board of Examiners, in order to be registered as a professional engineer in Alberta, he was being discriminated against based on his country of origin.
“APEGA firmly believes that the public interest must be the paramount concern of any self-regulating profession,” says APEGA CEO Mark Flint, P.Eng.
