INSTITUTE ROLE
The Alberta Institute of Agrologist’s authority derives from The Agrology Profession Act (APA) and The Agrology Regulation
Section 3 (1) of the APA states “The institute must”:
(a) carry out its activities and govern its regulated members in a manner that protects and serves the public interest,
(b) provide direction to and regulate the practice of agrology by its regulated members,
(c) establish, maintain and enforce standards of practice, registration and continuing competence for the practice of agrology
(d) establish, maintain and enforce a code of ethics, and
(e) carry on the activities of the Institute and perform other duties and functions by the exercise of the powers conferred by this Act.

THE PRACTICE OF AGROLOGY
The Profession of Agrology focuses on science as it applies directly or indirectly to the management of biophysical resources, food production systems, food security and safety, and environmental quality. The practice of agrology in Alberta encompasses four Agrology sectors: Life Sciences, Environment, Agriculture and Food with 43 practice areas.

PUBLIC COMPLAINTS
The public has access to a fair and responsive complaint process to address incompetent or unethical practice by registered agrology professionals.

The Institute will be offering your company the best targeted employment posting service in the industry for agrology related positions. Your employment posting will be emailed directly to your target market of 2,500 Alberta agrologists every Friday in the weekly agrologists update. A fee will be charged for this exclusive service.
