As a regulator, APEGM does not recommend or endorse any particular professional engineers or geoscientists. For your protection, you should ensure that you only consider licensed consultants who can legally offer engineering or geoscientific services in Manitoba.
There are many industry associations that may provide referrals. In addition to the list below, you may also check the phone book or the internet by searching for keywords: engineers, engineering, engineering consultants and similar.

You may want to review the Guide for the Engagement of a Consulting Professional Engineer.
Before you consider any consultant offering engineering or geoscience services you should confirm that they are licensed to offer those services in Manitoba. Only licensed individuals and companies are entitled to practice engineering or geoscience in Manitoba or offer those services to the public.
Anyone offering or providing unlicensed services may be in violation of the
Engineering and Geosciences Professions Act and subject to penalty under that Act.
Only APEGM can grant licenses to practice engineering and geoscience in Manitoba.
The only way to confirm if someone is currently licensed by APEGM and therefore entitled to engage in reserved practice
or use reserved titles is to check the APEGM Registers:
Membership Directory, or Company Directory.
APEGM prefers that the public call the Manitoba Chapter of the Canadian Association of Home and Property Inspectors (CAHPI) when seeking a home inspection. A home inspection performed in accordance with their Standards of Practice helps home buyers to make a sound purchase decision based on valuable, objective information.
If you have serious structural or foundation problems, a home inspector will recommend hiring a professional engineer to provide a consultation. If you know that there are serious issues with your home that need the attention of an engineer you can contact the Manitoba chapter of the Association of Consulting Engineers of Canada to find one that will suit your needs.
If you have concerns about unlicensed work or use of the terms 'engineer' or 'geoscientist', or issues of safety or quality of work done by a professional engineer, you can contact the APEGM Professional Standards Officer to discuss the issues.
