Administrative history

The Association of Professional Engineers of the Province of New Brunswick was incorporated in 1920 by an act of the provincial legislature. The association's primary purposes are to regulate and govern the practice of engineering in New Brunswick and to establish and maintain standards of professional knowledge, skill, and ethics among its members. Amendments to the act of incorporation were made in 1960, 1970, 1974, and 1999.

The association changed its name in December 1999 to the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of New Brunswick, reflecting new fields of research and professional practice. The APEGNB maintains a close relationship with the University of New Brunswick and other institutions of higher learning. In 2001 the association has a membership of approximately 4,000 which includes all categories (full, life, honourary, university students etc.) and reflects various levels of education and experience. Its main offices are located at 535 Beaverbrook Court in Fredericton, N.B.
