Renew Your Membership for 2017
It’s time to renew your membership or license for the 2017 year. APEGBC members and licensees should have received their 2017 annual membership renewal invoice in the first week of November. Paper invoices will be sent at the same time for those who prefer to complete their renewals via mailed hard copy.
Don’t forget: under the Engineers and Geoscientists Act, the deadline to renew your membership is January 1, 2017. After this date, a $75 late fee will be levied on late payments, and on March 1, 2017, anyone who has not yet paid their annual fee will be struck off the register.
How do I Renew my Membership?
Members and licensees may renew their membership online, by mail or by fax. The January 1, 2017 payment deadline also applies to any members submitting their 2017 annual fee invoice to their employer for payment.
The fastest and most convenient way to renew your membership is online, through the APEGBC member portal. It also allows you to update your contact information, complete the Practice Declaration, apply for non-practising or reduced fee status if eligible, declare compliance with the APEGBC CPD guideline, make a contribution to the APEGBC Foundation or Benevolent Fund, join a division, and print an official income tax receipt.
How do I Discontinue my Membership?
Members or licensees who do not wish to maintain membership with APEGBC are advised to resign prior to the January 1, 2017 deadline. This can be done online through the member portal or by contacting APEGBC by mail or e-mail. Members and licensees who neither resign nor renew their membership will be removed from the member register on March 1, 2017 and will be liable for the 2017 member fees.
How do I Reinstate my Membership following Resignation or Removal for Non-Payment?
Members who wish to continue their membership in 2017 will be required to complete the expedited reinstatement, which includes completing the declaration, and payment of the annual membership, late fee, and Reinstatement or Return to Practice fee. More Information >
Do you Offer Assistance to Members who can’t Afford to Pay their Membership Fees?
APEGBC’s reduced fee policy allows access to reduced annual fees based on an “active income” threshold or a medical condition that renders the member or licensee unfit for work. Requests for reduction of annual fees will be based on a formal application through the online renewal process or on the detachable form on the back of the fee renewal invoice.
The reduced fee is 50% of the annual membership fee. Prorated memberships and one-time license fees for newly granted members are not eligible for fee reduction. Reduced fees may be requested for a maximum of two consecutive years.
