Annual Information Reporting

Please note that our office will be closed on September 30 in recognition of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Online reporting will still be available through your online account; however, staff will not be available to respond to any inquiries.
If you have not completed your Annual Reporting, your action is required to maintain your registration with Engineers and Geoscientists BC. 

Registrants who have not reported by September 30, 2021 will be automatically suspended and will no longer be registered in good standing. 

Under the Professional Governance Act (PGA), registrants are required to verify certain practice-related information annually and keep their contact information up to date. Registrants can report their information by completing a simple, four-step questionnaire from their Engineers and Geoscientists BC online account by June 30 of each year.

Continuing Education

Beginning in May 2022, registrants will use the same application to report their Continuing Education activities during the annual information reporting period. Learn more about the new Continuing Education program.  

Reporting Continuing Education activities is not a requirement of annual information reporting in 2021. 

Email Address

Registrants are required to keep a unique and personal email address on file with Engineers and Geoscientists BC. This ensures that Engineers and Geoscientists BC can reach you with important information and updates. This requirement is mandatory, and registrants should review this email account on a regular basis.

Criminal Convictions

A criminal conviction is an offence that is heard in court and would be accompanied by a sentence (fine, suspension of licence, seizure of vehicle, imprisonment etc.). Traffic violations for which a person receives a ticket are not convictions and do not need to be reported.  

Key Dates and Deadlines

Registrants must complete this mandatory regulatory requirement during the annual reporting window which is open from the first business day in May until June 30.

Late Reporting Fees

Registrants that fail to report their information before the June 30 deadline may be subject to late fees.

We recognize this is a new requirement for registrants, and awareness of this process is still developing. Council has waived the $100 late reporting fee for 2021, however, registrants who do not update their information prior to September 30 will be suspended. Registrants who have not completed their annual reporting by December 31, 2021, will have their registration cancelled.

Suspensions and Cancellations

Registrants who fail to report their information before the September 30 and December 31 deadlines are subject to suspension and cancellation.

Registrants who have had their registration suspended or cancelled are prohibited from engaging in professional engineering or geoscience in BC and from representing themselves as practicing engineers or geoscientists in BC during the period of their suspension. In addition, suspended registrants are no longer covered under the Secondary Professional Liability insurance policy.

A registrant who engages in the practice of professional engineering or geoscience in BC while their registration is suspended or cancelled is subject to disciplinary action by Engineers and Geoscientists BC.

How to Have Your Suspension Lifted

To avoid having your registration cancelled, your immediate action is required:

  • Log onto your Engineers and Geoscientists BC online account using your six-digit user ID and password and complete your annual information reporting.
  • Within 5 business days of your submission, Engineers and Geoscientists BC will email you to confirm your suspension has been lifted.
  • If you were using Notarius for digital signatures and electronic seals, you need to re-apply for a subscription directly with Notarius. Fees will apply. Visit our Seals and Certificates webpage for more information.

Please be advised that our support staff cannot fast-track the processing of your submission or provide status updates. If you have not received a confirmation email within 5 business days:

  • Verify that your annual report was successfully submitted.
  • Check the junk folder in your email for the confirmation.
  • Five business days after submitting your reporting, email [email protected] to inquire.

How to Reinstate Your Registration
