There are many processes that are supported through the Association's secure member's only website. Examples include annual dues payment, progress report submissions and review, writing the ABC Test, logging ProDev, maintaining contact information and preferences, and so on.
While this is called the "member's website", many non-members have numbers on the system. This includes Student Members, Association Interns, Assessment Applicants, Guest Supervisors, and former members. If you think you may have a number on our system, but are not certain, please contact the Association.
The member's only website is hosted at https://apps.apegm.mb.ca/. The normal access point is the 'LOGIN' button at the top right of any Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba website page.
First time logging in
If you have been assigned an Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba ID number for whatever reason, then you can request a password for the site. For Association members, this is the number on your Membership Card. If you have been an Association Member long enough to have a Certificate Number that is different from your Application Number, then your ID number is your Application Number. We will also need a valid and current e-mail address recorded in your file.
You will need to visit the claim password page and match your Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba ID, first and last name, and e-mail address to what we have on file. If we find a match, a temporary password will be sent to the e-mail address you matched. You will find this temporary password in your e-mail account and use it along with your ID to login.
When logging in with a temporary password, you will be asked to supply a new password for future logins.
Forgetting your password
You can re-set a forgotten password using the 'Forgot Password?' link on the login page. You will need to match your ID with an e-mail address we have on file, then a new temporary password will be sent to that e-mail.
If you don't have access to the e-mail account on file with the Association, then you should contact the Association office to update your file and re-set your password.
Getting An Account
Normally accounts are created when you submit an application to the Association, for any reason. You will be made aware of your ID number with your acceptance package.
Prospective applicants may also choose to e-mail the Registration Coordinator to activate their ABC Test, so they have more time to complete the test before they submit their application.
Sometimes people without a direct link to the Association need to login to the site to support an applicant's file. For example, the Progress Reports gather comments from direct Supervisors of our applicants, even when they are not Members, and we will accept Professional References from non-Members.
If someone needs to get you a profile so you can login and comment on their work, they have a way to initiate a 'Guest Profile Invitation' after they are logged in.
Closing An Account
The only time that an account would be closed is when we discover someone has created 'duplicate' accounts. There is value in keeping a single person's activity under a single account. This way they only have a single set of login credentials, and will not have their content split across profiles. When we discover duplicate profiles, we will choose one to keep then merge all details, and the extra profiles and login credentials are removed. You will get an e-mail notice if this happens.
Your account will never expire; if you have an ID and password, then you can login. If you are not active with the Association, your profile will have limited functionality. You retain access to past receipts, your ProDev log, past Progress Report comments you made, and other details you may need. If your membership is reinstated, it will re-activate your existing profile.
The Member's Website is protected by an SSL certificate that encrypts all network traffic between our server and you. That means that only your computer and our server can make sense of the information that is transferred between us. The SSL certification process also verifies the server actually belongs to Engineers Geoscientists Manitoba.
There is no way for the Association to know what your password is. The best we can do if you forget your password is to reset it and let you choose a new one. There is no length limit on your chosen password, and you can change your password at any time after logging in.
The Association does not store credit card details. You will need to enter your card details each time you wish to make a payment through the Association site.
The Association server is also protected by a firewall that monitors network level threats.
