  • NAFTA - APEGM
    was signed in June 1995 Under this agreement if you Hold an accredited Degree Have at least 12 years Experience 8 after registration Can demonstrate knowledge of Local Codes and Practices Have effective language skills Agree to comply with local law Are willing to accept cross border discipline and Comply with local continuing competency requirements or Hold an unaccredited degree Have at least 16 years experience 12 after registration Can demonstrate knowledge of local codes and practices Have effective language skills Agree to comply with local law Are willing to accept cross border discipline and Comply with local continuing competency requirements you will qualify for a one year renewable temporary license to practise in any of the other jurisdictions that are signatories to the MRA The jurisdiction for the implementation of the MRA rests with the provincial and territorial engineering Associations in Canada and with the State Licensing Boards in the U S not with the bodies which negotiated and signed the MRA It is up to each individual provincial association or state board therefore to implement the MRA Where is APEGM We have submitted a letter of intent to sign the MRA but the details of implementation have not yet been worked out We have identified areas in which our legislation and policies are inconsistent with the MRA and are working on the necessary revisions for example we just changed our By laws to enable the temporary licensure of Mexican engineers although we have yet to develop the necessary policies and procedures Most importantly however whatever we do in terms of implementation must be consistent with the processes adopted by the other Canadian associations which means that the implementation process may take a while Where is Canada By October 1996 most of the Canadian engineering Associations had submitted to CCPE Letters of Intent to sign on to the NAFTA MRA In November 1996 the Admissions Officials from the Associations across Canada met in a first attempt to develop an implementation procedure that can be uniformly implemented across Canada The results of that meeting at which some consensus was reached will be and likely have been by the time you read this forwarded to CCPE for approval Once approved a national guideline will be issued and this Association will commence with the adoption of policies and procedures for offering temporary licenses to U S and Mexican engineers What is Happening in the U S Anyone who has attempted registration in the U S will be aware that to become registered there you currently have to complete two eight hour examinations U S graduates have to write these examinations prior to registration and so therefore do Canadians Some state boards will waive the first examination an examination in engineering fundamentals if you have a significant amount of engineering experience however it is very rare that a Canadian engineer becomes registered as a P E in the U S without writing at least eight hours worth of exams The NAFTA MRA represents

  • 2011 Vote Results - APEGM
    the majority of the ballots be about minor grammar and changes to capitalization of words will only lead to increased levels of apathy among voting members as it has in me I think it is ridiculous and a waste of time to change tyhe bylaws simply because a word has an AMERICAN or whatever the other spelling is If both are accepted in the Webster or Oxford dictionary then LEAVE IT ALONE AND SPEND MORE TIME OR MORE WORTHWHILE ENDEAVORS If you have a word specialist on the council then he she should work for the language police Too many changes in one by law regarding CPD may result in against votes by membership even though I voted for If this occurs may want to consider seperating some of the conditions in the by law for seperate vote if that s possible I agree people should not be late in payment of dues but the end of the year is an awkward time End of January would be better have full names in the ballots I reviewed the resumes platforms took down their first names and then when I got to the ballot just had first name and initials was a pain to go back and review the list The CPD program provides little value to a company that historically has little to no usage of a Professional Seal APEGM should work with those companies to obtain recognition of development programs to permit an exemption I recognize the need to have all APEGM members vote on changes to the bylaw but textual changes to fix typos seem like they should be dealt with in a better way The amount of CPD hours have to be similar throughout Canada there is no real reason for Manitoba to request more CPD hours than any other province Late payment can still be as it was or can be reduced to say at least 1 month The reason for this is that APEGM members may go for several weeks or even upto two months depending on where he she is from For example I have visited my home country two times so far and both visits were more than six weeks The grace period for payment of dues was 2 months which is too long but 10 days is too short 15 to 21 days is realistic The CPD program has been approved by council but you have not made it clear that it requires radification by the members 10 days time is short for applying late payment fee Suggest increasing to three weeks RE Bylaw 9 2 8 Late Payment While 2 months grace does not reflect todyas reality 10 days is both too short and vague Calendar or business days especially given the time of year of the due date and that APRGM offcies are closed during this period if there are web site functional issues I suggest 15 calendar days effectively means Jan 15th From 2 months to 10 days seems to move from the sublime to the ridiculous Is there some middle ground The late payment should have a 30 days grace period The proposed 10 days is too short as the last date for payment of due is during holidays there is a high possibility to be missed by members due to the hectic work deadlines family etc nature of the period between mid Decembers to mid January Suggest late payment grace period be 15 days Is it not possible to have a process for addressing English editorial issues without engaging the entire membership If not I highly recommend looking into it In my field aviation it is a common practice for legal and technical documents to be revised for such trivial matters without utilizing more laborious processes It would be better to have a shorter method of getting to the voting section It seemed like I had to click through four or five screens before I actually got to the voting section Once there the voting system was really good much prefered over the paper ballots I think that not capitalizing Registrar as a title is not logical Then in the By law for CPD under 7 1 2 you have then capitalized Registrar I also think tha not capitalizing council is also not logical It is a Title With respect to the late pyment issue not everyone is satisfied witht he security of on line payments by credit card Also the change from 2 months to 10 days seems extreme I pay on time so it is not an issue but pay on line with a crdit card is not a good enough reason Each amended section of the By law should have it s own vote The section for by law changes to the Professional Development section had several revision yet there was only an option to vote for against all of them as a group The ballots indicated some terms should not be capitalized to be consistent with the bylaws The terms should be defined in the bylaws and then can be capitalized Other Dissappointed with APEGMs decision regarding Bipole 3 advocacy This site is at best confusing to use bordering on why am I doing this Regarding CPD Stop trying to hide the issue and mislead the members Many engineers I talked to thought the CPD proposal was a done deal based on your misleading promotion Stop playing politics Civil engineers who use their stamp all the time will have an easy time in CPD Other engineers will have a tough time making up the 150 hours unavailable through professional practise Stop trying to ram REQUIRED professional development down our throats Not everyone has access to events and moreover not all employers provide assistance with costs and time off etc It s an uneven playing field I have no further feedback to contribute Anonymous my ass Only if APEGM chooses not to look From the ballet it doesn t seem to take to the
