Renew Your Membership

Don’t forget: under the Engineers and Geoscientists Act, the deadline to renew your membership is January 1, 2019. After this date a $75 late fee will be levied on late payments, and on March 1, 2019, anyone who has not yet paid their annual fee will be removed from the register.

How Do I Renew my Membership?

Members and licensees may renew their membership online, by mail, or by fax. The January 1, 2019 payment deadline also applies to any members submitting their 2019 annual fee invoice to their employer for payment.

The fastest and most convenient way to renew your membership is online through your account. It also allows you to update your contact information, complete the Practice Declaration, apply for non-practising or reduced fee status if eligible, declare compliance with the CPD guideline, make a contribution to the Foundation or Benevolent Fund, join a division, and print your official income tax receipt.

Changes to Non-Practising Membership

Recently, members ratified changes to the bylaw for Non-Practising Membership that will now enable members and limited licensees who are not practising professional engineering or geoscience to move to non-practising status for a reduced fee. Members who elect this status must sign an annual declaration not to engage in professional practice, and use one of two qualified titles.

For detailed information, visit the Non-Practising Membership page.

Review the Guideline and FAQ for Non-Practising Status

Members who wish to change their membership status to non-practising can do so via their online member account by selecting the “Request for Non-Practising Status” link and completing the declaration. Members may also change their status by contacting the Registration Department at 604.412.4856 or by email at [email protected].

Digital Member Cards

As of 2019, member cards will be going digital. You will be able to access your digital card through your online member account. You can also opt-in to receive a printed card by logging into your account, or by contacting the association at 604.412.4859 or [email protected].

How do I Reinstate my Membership following Resignation or Removal for Non-Payment?

Members who wish to continue their membership in 2019 will be required to complete the expedited reinstatement, which includes completing the declaration, as well as paying the annual membership fee, any applicable late fees, and Reinstatement or Return to Practice fee.

How Do I Discontinue my Membership?

Members or licensees who do not wish to maintain membership with the association are advised to resign prior to the January 1, 2019 deadline. This can be done online through your account or by contacting us by mail or email. Members and licensees who neither resign nor renew their membership will be removed from the member register on March 1, 2019 and will be liable for the 2019 member fees.

Do You Offer Assistance to Members Who Can’t Afford to Pay Their Membership Fees?

Fee Reduction

Our reduced fee policy allows access to reduced annual fees based on an “active income” threshold or a medical condition that renders the member or licensee unfit for work. Requests for reduction of annual fees will be based on a formal application through the online renewal process or on the detachable form on the back of the fee renewal invoice.

Reduced membership fees are available to practising members and licensees, and members-in-training who report active annual income of less than $31,000. The reduced fee amount is 50% of the annual fee. For more information see: egbc.ca/reduction-or-deferral.

Prorated memberships and one-time license fees for newly granted members are not eligible for fee reduction. Non-practising members may not apply for reduced fees.
