Q: I got my ring at a recent Virtual ceremony and it doesn't fit very well. Can I exchange it?
Yes you Can! We have a mail in program in place now, please go the the Ring Exchange page for more details.
Q: I'm about to receive an undergraduate Engineering degree from a Canadian university in a few months. Can I get a Ring?
Yes you Can! Just register for the next ceremony. We normally hold two each year, in March and November. Check the Ceremonies page for more information.
Q: I did not get my undergraduate degree from a Canadian Engineering school. Can I still get a ring?
Yes you can! You will need to register with APEGA as a P.Eng, or as an EIT and be on track to become a P.Eng. Just provide your APEGA number when you register for the next Ritual.
Q: I registered for the last ceremony and was not able to attend. Will you send a ring to me?
Sorry, we can’t do that. You must attend the Ritual to receive your ring. You will have to register and attend the next event.
Q: Can I bring a guest?
Yes you can! You are allowed two guests for in person ceremonies at no charge. For Virtual ceremonies you can have as many guests as you like join you in person. For the coming ceremony we will provide details when you register which will depend on the Covid rules in place at that time.
Q: I would like my parent/other family member/boss/good friend who is an Engineer put my ring on my finger. Can I do this?
Yes you Can! Anyone of significance to you who already has an iron ring is allowed to place your ring on your finger. It should be someone with some years of experience though, you can’t have another classmate do this for you.
Q: I would rather attend the Ritual in person. Can I just wait for that?
Yes you can! If you would rather wait to attend the Ritual in person that is your choice. We aren’t certain when it will be possible, but we are certain that there will be an in-person event sometime.
Q: I received my ring at a virtual ceremony and would like to experience the Ritual in person. Can I attend the next live event?
Yes you Can! We aren’t certain when we will be allowed to hold the next in person Ritual, but if you received your ring from us at a virtual event, you can register for a live event and renew your Obligation with us in person at no charge.
