Legislation & Bylaws

On February 5, 2021, the Professional Governance Act (PGA) came into force and replaced the Engineers and Geoscientists Act.

The PGA establishes a new, consolidated framework for professional regulators in the natural and built environment, including Engineers and Geoscientists BC and the regulators for forestry, agrology, biology, and applied science. It also establishes a new oversight body for this legislation—the Office of the Superintendent of Professional Governance (OSPG)—which reports into the Ministry of the Attorney General.

The PGA defines Engineers and Geoscientists BC’s mandate and governing authority. The PGA also outlines the obligations and standards that all registrants under the PGA must meet. The Regulations further define the obligations and standards set out in the PGA.

The Bylaws of Engineers and Geoscientists BC set out the specific standards and procedures that apply to Engineers and Geoscientists BC and its registrants.
