e-PEG Newsletter: November 24, 2017


We Agree – The Importance of Protecting the Public is Paramount

On November 8, 2017, Barry Cavanaugh, Chief Executive Officer and General Counsel of the Association of Science and Engineering Technology Professionals of Alberta (ASET), posted a news item on ASET's website regarding scope of practice for technologists and the many conversations that APEGA has had with ASET over the decades on this issue.

Although we agree with ASET and Mr. Cavanaugh on many points, we feel that it's important we correct some of the information in the post and share APEGA's perspective on the topic. Please read our post on the APEGA website.

Percentage of Women Enrolled in Engineering Grows

Female enrolments in undergraduate and graduate engineering programs in Canada have reached a new high, says a report from Engineers Canada. In a program adapted from one started by APEGA, Engineers Canada – the country's national voice of engineering regulators – promotes an initiative called 30-by-30. It seeks to increase the proportion of newly licensed women in engineering to 30 per cent by 2030.
