Upcoming Webinar on Professional Governance Act Essentials

Posted on May 8, 2019
The regulatory landscape is changing in British Columbia, and Engineers and Geoscientists BC is holding a webinar on June 26, where President Dr. Katherina Tarnai-Lokhorst, P.Eng., FEC, will update members on the Professional Governance Act, our response to Government's intentions, and provide answers to your questions.

In November 2018, the BC Government passed the Professional Governance Act, which will consolidate government oversight of the five professional regulators for engineering and geoscience, forestry, agrology, applied biology, and applied science technology under a new Office of the Superintendent of Professional Governance.

The new legislation is a result of government’s professional reliance review, which examined the current legislation governing qualified professionals in the natural resource sector, and the role their professional associations play in upholding the public interest.

Join Dr. Tarnai-Lokhorst on June 26, 2019 for a webinar that will provide an update on the status of the new legislation, and a review Engineers and Geoscientists BC’s response to the BC Government’s intentions paper, which includes positions on corporate regulation, declarations of competency and declarations of conflict of interest, and independent practice rights for engineering technologists.

Following the presentation, there will be an opportunity for webinar participants to ask questions on this important topic.
