FOR THE PUBLIC

Complaints Against Members

Complaints made to Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba are classified into two broad categories:

  • Enforcement
  • Discipline

Enforcement

Any member of the public may make a complaint against a person who is suspected of violating the prohibitions section of the Act. Examples of prohibited acts include:

  • Use of the title Engineer, Geoscientist, P.Eng., or P.Geo. by a non-member, and
  • Practising professional engineering or professional geoscience without a license.

The penalty for a first-time violation of the prohibitions section of the Act may be a fine of up to $10,000.00.


Discipline

Any member of the public may make a complaint against one of the Association's members or holders of a certificate of authorization. Complaints against members must indicate the actions by that member which are alleged to meet the Act's definition of Professional Misconduct or Unskilled Practice. Complaints must be submitted in writing to the Association and will be forwarded to the Investigation Committee for their consideration.
