Why Become a Professional?
The Canadian Council of Professional Engineers has developed a site that addresses that question. Although it has been developed with engineers in mind the message is also clear for geoscience students. Click here.

Professional Start
Courses and seminars are offered in your 4th year to provide you with a better understanding of the professions, the APEGGA Code of Ethics and and your future responsibilities as a professional. There is also a special workshop and luncheon held in conjunction with the Ring Ceremonies for graduating students that will introduce you to your future role and responsibilities.
