Renew Your Registration

Don’t forget: under the Professional Governance Act, the deadline to renew your registration is December 31, 2020. After this date a late fee of 15% of the annual fee will be levied on late payments, and on January 31, 2021, anyone who has not yet paid their annual fee will be removed from the register.

The December 31, 2020 payment deadline also applies to any registrants submitting their 2021 annual fee invoice to their employer for payment.

How Do I Renew my Registration?

Registrants and licensees may renew their registration online through your account using your 6-digit User ID number and password. Your account 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.

Non-Practising Registration

Registered professional engineers, professional geoscientists, and limited licensees may move from practising to non-practising status for a reduced fee if they commit not to practise professional engineering or professional geoscience. Registrants who elect this status must sign an annual declaration not to engage in professional practice, and use one of two qualified titles, "Non-Practising" or "Retired".

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

Review the Guideline and FAQ for Non-Practising Status

Registrants who wish to change their registration status to non-practising can do so via their online registrant account by selecting the “Request for Non-Practising Status” link and completing the declaration. Registrants may also change their status by completing the declaration and returning it with their payment. Registrants with questions about practise status should contact the Registration Department at 604.412.4856 or by email at [email protected].

Digital Registrant Cards

You will be able to access your digital card through your online registrant account. You can also opt-in to receive a printed card by logging into your account, or by contacting Engineers and Geoscientists BC at 604.412.4859 or [email protected].

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

Registrants who wish to continue their registration in 2021 will be required to complete the expedited reinstatement, which includes completing the declaration, as well as paying the annual registration fee, any applicable late fees, and Reinstatement or Return to Practice fee.

Do You Offer Assistance to Registrants Who Can’t Afford to Pay Their Registration 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 registrant 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 registration fees are available to practising registrants and licensees, and trainees 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 registration and one-time license fees for newly granted registrants are not eligible for fee reduction. Non-practising registrants may not apply for reduced fees.
