Engineering and Geoscience Week Proclaimed

Released on March 2, 2015

Highways and Infrastructure Minister Nancy Heppner has proclaimed March 1-7, 2015, as Engineering and Geoscience Week.  The week recognizes the important role members of the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan (APEGS) play in the lives of Saskatchewan residents.

“APEGS is one of Saskatchewan’s largest and most respected professional associations,” Heppner said.  “We are happy to recognize Engineering and Geoscience Week, which is a great way to celebrate the achievements of geoscientists and engineers and reinforce the significance of these fields.”

The work of APEGS members touches almost every sector in Saskatchewan including agriculture, forestry, environment, construction, manufacturing, transportation, resources, utilities, mining, water, healthcare and education. 
 
“APEGS is proud to have Engineering and Geoscience Week proclaimed in Saskatchewan which recognizes the important work that professional engineers and geoscientists carry out in our growing Saskatchewan economy,” APEGS President Andrew Loken said.  “Our more than 11,000 members are dedicated to the highest standards of practice to ensure the protection of the public and the environment and the benefit of society.”

APEGS is the governing body responsible for the regulation of the practice of professional engineers and geoscientists in the province.  Numerous activities have been planned for Engineering and Geoscience Week to help commemorate the profession, including a media campaign featuring TV commercials and newspaper inserts.
