The Government of Saskatchewan recognizes the significant role that engineers and geoscientists play in Saskatchewan by proclaiming March 4-10 as Engineering and Geoscience Week.
“The members of the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan contribute to our province by designing new bridges and roads to keep travellers safe and our export-based economy strong,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister David Marit said. “The work of these men and women is relied upon across Saskatchewan, and we will celebrate their achievements this week.”
The work of the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan (APEGS) has an impact on almost every sector in Saskatchewan including agriculture, construction, environment, forestry, manufacturing, mining, resources, utilities, health care, education, transportation and resources.
“APEGS protects the public by ensuring high technical and ethical standards of engineering and geoscience practice in Saskatchewan,” APEGS President Ernie Barber said. “Through years of study, training and continuing professional development, our 13,000 professional engineers and geoscientists design solutions that make the province and the world a better place for everyone to live.”
APEGS is the governing body responsible for regulating the practice of engineering and geoscience professionals in the province. Numerous activities have been planned for Engineering and Geoscience Week to help commemorate the profession, including a media campaign featuring billboards, TV commercials and newspaper inserts.
