Canada drops state-registered geologists as "qualified persons"

The AIPG newsletter this month reported that the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) "has shortened its list of recognized foreign professional organizations" that meet the definition of "qualified person" under National Instrument 43-101, so that "Licensed or registered geologists by US states are conspicuously absent." Basically, they deleted the designation of ASBOG certifications in the regulations appendix on "Accepted Foreign Associations and Membership Designations."

Yet, U.S. state registered engineers are still eligible to be qualified persons.

AIPG notes that U.S. geologists who want to serve as qualified persons, can qualify with AIPG Certification.
