Prior Legislation and Bylaws
Under the Professional Governance Act (PGA), the Council of Engineers and Geoscientists BC is permitted to amend the Bylaws, with final approval by the Superintendent of Professional Governance. The first version of the Bylaws was approved and came into force on February 5, 2021. Since then, there have been periodic amendments the Bylaws. This page contains links to all past versions of the Engineers and Geoscientists BC Bylaws made under the PGA which have now been superseded by the current Bylaws.
Before the PGA came into force on February 5, 2021, Engineers and Geoscientists BC was governed by the Engineers and Geoscientists Act (EGA) and the previous Bylaws made under the EGA. The EGA and the previous Bylaws are no longer in force, however, they may still be relevant in some investigation and discipline cases that concern registrants’ practice and conduct from before the PGA and new Bylaws came into force.
Further, the previous definitions of the practice of professional engineering and geoscience in section 1(1) of the EGA remain relevant because under the Regulations to the PGA, any practice that falls within the definitions of the practice of professional engineering or geoscience in the former EGA are reserved practices under the PGA that may only be engaged in by registrants of Engineers and Geoscientists BC.
