Engineering And Geoscience Week Proclaimed

Released on March 2, 2020

The Government of Saskatchewan has proclaimed March 1-7, 2020, 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 our province’s largest and most respected professional associations,” Highways and Infrastructure Minister Greg Ottenbreit said.  “We are very pleased 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 reaches almost every sector in Saskatchewan including agriculture, forestry, environment, construction, manufacturing, transportation, resources, utilities, mining, water, health care and education.

“APEGS sets high admission standards for qualified engineers and geoscientists to become licensed processionals in order to practice in Saskatchewan,” APEGS President Terry Fonstad said.  “Our more than 13,000 members are required to remain proficient and competent to ensure the protection of the public and the environment for the benefit of society.”

To celebrate Engineering and Geoscience Week, APEGS, the Saskatchewan Geological Survey and the Saskatchewan Geological Society are introducing GeoExplore Saskatchewan, a new website for people to explore and understand the geological features of Saskatchewan as they travel around the province.  From the Athabasca Sand Dunes and Hunt Falls in the north to the Great Sand Hills and strange pillar formations of the Avonlea Badlands in the south, people can learn how natural events and processes shaped the geography of the province.  View the website at www.tourismsaskatchewan.com.

Engineering and Geoscience Week coincides with National Engineering and Geoscience Month, Canada’s biggest celebration of engineering and geoscience.
