The Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan (APEGS)

In Canada, 13 self-governing associations regulate Engineering and Geoscience. In Saskatchewan, the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan (APEGS) administer the Engineering and Geoscience Professions Act.

All people who are practicing engineering or geoscience in Saskatchewan must be registered by APEGS. For more information on APEGS please see web site This web site contains a lot of information on APEGS, The Act and the Association’s Bylaws.   It also has links to all of the other provincial associations and to the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers (CCPE) and the Canadian Council of Professional Geoscientists (CCPG).

Office for Research, Innovation and Partnership

The ORIP provides professional administrative expertise to the University’s research community by sourcing out funding opportunities, by providing guidance in grant proposal preparation and submission, by assisting in post-award reporting and regulatory observance, and by negotiating fair and equitable research contracts.
