&GEOSCIENCE GEOSCIEN WEEK EVER WONDER Brought to you by the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan

Mosaic Stadium: Have you ever wondered how the stadium stands? How does the concrete and steel, stacked and angled, seemingly defy gravity? How does the giant screen work? T he stadium lights shine? Clean fresh tap water – straight to your home: Have you ever wondered how that happens? Who dug the reservoir? Designed the pipes? Cleaned the water? How does water pressure work? Saskatchewan’s natural resources – potash, uranium, oil and gas: Who discovered them? Who finds new motherlodes of resource riches? Who digs the mines and the wells and keeps them running?

Saskatoon – the Bridge City: Where do all those bridges come from? Who builds the massive structures joining the river banks? How do they stay so solid and reliable that thousands of cars a day can pass over them with no fear of falling in the water? Saskatchewan’s vast network of highways and roads linking every city, town and village: Who plans them? Who decides where new roads need to go? How do they withstand all the extremes of our province’s climate? How do all the potholes (or, at least, most of them) get fixed? T hese things and many more in our day-to-day lives happen because engineers and geoscientists wondered.

Engineers and geoscientists use their imagination and skills to bring the wonders of modern life into reality. Engineers and geoscientists belong to self-governing professions. They are overseen by their governing body, the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists (APEGS) and the engineering business association, the A ssociation of Consulting Engineering Companies of Saskatche wan (ACEC-SK). These associations use their foresight to develop and enforce one of the strictest codes of ethics and professional conduct of any profession in Canada. Engineers and geoscientists: Ever wondering.

MES SAGE FROM THE MINISTER OF H I G H WAY S A N D I N F R A S T R U C T U R E On behalf of the Government of Saskatchewan and Premier Scott Moe, I am honoured to recognize the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan through Engineering and Geoscience Week. Whether it is designing new transportation infrastructure to support our exports getting to port or new innovative technology to make our road safer for our commuters, professional engineers and geoscientists play an important role.

APEGS – ENSURING PUBLIC SAFETY The Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan (APEGS) regulates the practices of professional engineering and professional geoscience for the protection of the public and the environment and the benefit of society. “In our regulatory role, safeguarding the public is a primary objective of APEGS,” said Stormy Holmes, president of the association. “We accomplish this by ensuring that members are highly competent and ethical.” Some practi-

ces that APEGS follows to regulate the professions and safeguard the public include: • Undertaking a rigorous review process of each applicant to ensure that they have formal education and related working experience (a minimum of four years) before they can earn a designation and be granted a licence to practice as a Professional Engineer (P.Eng.), Professional Geoscientist (P.Geo.), Engineering Licensee, or Geoscience Licensee. • Requiring every mem-

ber of the association to define their scope of practice, work only within their areas of competency, create and execute a plan for continuing professional development, and report on their actives. Within the plan the member must also demonstrate they have accounted for ethics training. • Regularly connecting with universities, business, and industry to ensure that any person practicing professional engineering or professional geoscience is registered with APEGS. • Investigating and disci-

plining professional members as well as corporate entities that practice professional engineering and/ or professional geoscience through a Certificate of Authorization. In addition, APEGS is structured to allow for public oversight and transparency. APEGS’ Council governs the affairs and business of the association and includes two public appointee councillors that have full voice and voting privileges. One councillor is appointed to the investigation committee and the other to

the discipline committee. Through their participation on council and committee, the public appointees provide public oversight into the operations of the association. “ We belie ve that our regulatory structure and practices dictate and ensure the high standards that are required by professionals to practice in a safe, competent, and ethical manner, said Holmes. “They give the public confidence that our members are qualified to protect the public interest.”

ACEC-SK SUPPORTS DREAMING BIG TO ENGINEER OUR WORLD bryce hunter, P. eng. ACEC - SK Chair

Many folks appreciate the infrastructure and amenities in our province, but I often wonder how many understand the role engineers and geoscientists have played in developing Saskatchewan over time. Our work is often assumed – roads and bridges are safe, schools and hospitals provide essential services. All around our province, our

work impacts our communities. However, the innovation of engineering is often hidden or unseen. Engineering has been firmly established in Saskatchewan since the early days of western settlement in the 19th Century and has contributed in many ways to the modern society we live in today. Through time the profession has used science and technology to advance civilization through sound plan-

ning, innovative designs, advanced construction techniques and analysis and reduction of life-cycle costs. Significant examples of contributions through time include building the Canadian railways, establishment of the grain movement systems including elevators, implementation of drought protections and water management practices, the innovative Blairmore Ring which provides access to mineral rich resources,

developing sustainable and resilient ways to protect our towns and cities and many, many more. As time passes, and the world continually changes, that change creates new challenges and opportunities for the profession. As we progress, we need creative minds with big ideas to help solve some of our largest challenges, which are indeed our biggest opportunities including water and food scarcity, global

warning and the effects of greenhouse gases, impacts of technological advancement, navigating and being competitive in a global economy, and so on. It’s the great minds entering our industry that will help solve tomorrow’s challenges. I know our talented engineers and geoscientists are driven to work on making our profession and our province better. Considering the significant innovations and achieve-

ments of the past, I am anxious to see how our industry continues to contribute to the future…Dream Big, work hard, and let’s continue to Engineer our World!

IMPROVING PROFICIENCY AND COMPETENCY Another way the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan (APEGS) safeguards the public is by ensuring that its members remain proficient and competent in the practices of professional engineering and professional geoscience. All members of APEGS have an ethical obligation to keep themselves informed, to maintain their competence, and to practice only in their area(s) of competence. These obligations are part of the APEGS Code of Ethics (see sidebar). At the 2018 APEGS an-

nual meeting , members voted unanimously in favour of enhancing APEGS’ Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Program requirements. These enhancements bring APEGS’ CPD Program into alignment with the programs of other engineering and geoscience regulators across the country and also with the programs of most other self-regulated professions in Saskatchewan and nationally. The enhanced CPD Program includes requirements for members to obtain a minimum num-

ber of credits annually, in a minimum number of categories, and annually report those activities to APEGS through an online portal. As most complaints received by professional regulators, including APEGS, relate to members’ conduct, and not competence, the requirement for an annual verifiable ethics refresher was also added to the CPD Program. APEGS will be conducting compliance reviews each year to ensure that members are meeting the requirements as defined in the CPD Program.

Co-Op Refinery Complex’s Wastewater Improvement Project (WIP) has been recognized as a world-class achievement in wastewater management. The refinery requires an enormous amount of water to function. As its use continued to grow, the refinery launched its ambitious water recycling initiative at a cost of roughly $200 million. The WIP allows the refinery to clean 100 per cent of its wastewater and recycle up to 65 per cent. Even though the Refinery’s refining capacity has increased, the WIP cuts freshwater use by roughly 28 per cent the equivalent of the water used by 3,100 households in the City of Regina.

In an increasingly global economy, Saskatchewan’s professional engineers and geoscientists provide the insight, innovation and confidence necessary for sustainable growth. Find out more about APEGS and ACEC-SK at www.apegs.ca and www.acec-sk.ca.
