The Registration Committee of the APGO recognizes that from time to time exceptional circumstances occur when trying to provide required documents or when trying to accommodate part of the process for the APGO application for registration. Should such exceptional circumstances occur for an applicant, the applicant is invited to contact the Association, in writing, explaining the circumstance. The APGO Registration Committee will consider the information and provide a response.
|Three options are available for
registering as a professional geoscientist in Ontario:
1. First Time
Registration in Ontario - applicants, including
geoscientists-in-training (G.I.T.), currently not
registered anywhere else in Canada. For more
information, click here.
For First Time Registration, once all documentation concerning the application and the application fee have been received by the APGO, it takes approximately two months from the date of the receipt of the last piece of documentation, or the fee (should it be the last item received), for the Registration Committee to make a decision concerning the application. Should the Committee determine that further information is required from the applicant in order to make a decision, additional time would be required to make the decision.
Inter- Provincial Mobility -
Under the Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT) professional geoscientists registered in another
province may apply to be licensed in Ontario without the requirement of reassessment, retraining, or retesting. For more information,
Quebec/Ontario Mobility - professional
geoscientists registered in either province may apply
for Incidental or Temporary Practice through the
Quebec-Ontario Inter Association Mobility Agreement (
OGQ-APGO Mobility Agreement). For more information,
