About Us

Founded in 1920, the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of British Columbia regulates and governs the engineering and geoscience professions under the authority of the Engineers and Geoscientists Act.

The association is charged with protecting the public interest by setting and maintaining high academic, experience and professional practice standards for all 33,000 members. Individuals licensed by APEGBC are the only persons permitted by law to undertake and assume responsibility for engineering and geoscience projects in BC.
