Alberta merges licensing of geoscientists

By OGJ editors

In response to legislative changes affecting professional licensing, the Association of Professional Engineers, Geologists & Geophysicists of Alberta has become the Association of Professional Engineers & Geoscientists of Alberta (APEGA).

Alberta recently changed legislation under which APEGA self-regulates industry professionals to remove the distinction between professional geologists and professional geophysicists. For new licenses, it acknowledges only professional geoscientists.

Existing license-holders can choose between former designation and the new one. New licenses will be issued only for the new designation.

APEGA has 63,000 members, of which 3,730 are licensed professional geologists and 1,130 professional geophysicists.

Its members supported the change.
