Engineering firms soon need a Permit to Practice in BC

Engineers and Geoscientists BC (EGBC) is now under new legislation (the Professional Governance Act) which introduces a new requirement for firms in BC to register with them to obtain a Permit to Practice, beginning July 2, 2021. All firms that engage in the practice of professional engineering or professional geoscience as part of their operations in BC (including firms that only provide these services internally) are required to register with Engineers and Geoscientists BC and to renew their registration annually. This includes entities in both the public and private sector as well as sole practitioners. To learn more: egbc.ca/firms.
