The Professional Governance Act came into force in February 2021, representing a shift in how the professions of engineering and geoscience are regulated, and introducing new obligations and requirements for professional engineers and geoscientists. This new legislation establishes a 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.

This webinar will provide an overview of the key changes under the Professional Governance Act, including information on the Code of Ethics, Continuing Education Program, Annual Information Reporting, the regulation of engineering and geoscience firms, and other changes that may affect registrants. This webinar will also provide registrants the opportunity to have their questions on this important topic answered by President Larry Spence, P.Eng., and Chief Executive Officer & Registrar Ann English, P.Eng., FEC, FCSSE.
