No​tes:

  • A practising registrant, limited licence holder, engineer-in-training, or geoscientist-in-training who is renewing their registration and who is experiencing financial hardship that renders them unable to pay the full annual fee is eligible to apply for a reduced annual fee. To qualify for the reduced fee, a registrant must have an annual Active Income* of $31,000 or less, will be requested to provide a short explanation of their current situation, and may be audited from time to time and requested to supply proof of income and eligibility to pay the reduced annual fee. Prorated registrant or trainee fees, one-time licence fees, and the special levy are not eligible for fee reduction.
*Active Income includes gross income from all employment or director's fees and/or net income from self-employment; it does not include pension or other retirement income, investment income, unemployment insurance income, support payments, scholarships, bursaries, or disability income. All other sources of income are considered "active".
  • The reduced non-practising fee may not be further reduced. It may be waived due to a medical condition that renders the registrant or limited licence holder unable to work. A practising registrant or limited licence holder who changes to non-practising status during the calendar year after paying full annual fees for practising status will not receive a rebate or credit.
  • A late fee of 15% will be charged for annual fees paid after the due date of January 1.
