Notarius – Digital Authentication

The documents produced by engineers and geoscientists must maintain high standards of protection from unauthorized tampering. To assist in this matter, PEGNL license holders can now subscribe to digital seals for protecting authenticated professional documents.

The PEGNL Practice Guideline for Authenticating Professional Documents has been updated to reflect the digital signature option and may be found HERE.

PEGNL has selected Notarius as digital service provider allowing PEGNL to issue digital seals to licensees and permit to practice holders. 

Notarius provides this service to all fifteen (15) engineering and geoscience regulatory bodies in Canada.

Further information on the PEGNL Digital Signature is available HERE.

FAQs

  • How do I sign up?

    Go to PEGNL Notarius and fill out the application form at the bottom of their webpage. For more information on the sign-up process please refer to this document.

  • I would like to bill my company. How do I do that?

    Your company must first have a direct billing account with Notarius. Once an account has been opened, the option to direct bill your employer will be instantly available when you sign up through the portal based on your work email domain name.

  • Does Notarius offer discounts for multiple employees in the same firm?

    Notarius offers group rates on annual subscription fees for groups of 51 users or more charged to the same account. For more information, contact the Notarius Sales team.

  • How long does it take to get a Digital Seal?

    The entire process takes about 45 minutes but is spread over 5 business days. It can sometimes require less time, but you should plan on 5 business days.

  • I practice my profession in multiple jurisdictions; how do I get an additional signature and are there reduced costs?

    If you practice in more than one jurisdiction and the professional associations that you belong to issue digital signatures through the Notarius Certificate Authority, there is no additional sign-up fee, and the cost of additional digital signatures are $75 per signature.

    For example, if you are a member of EGBC, APEGA and PEGNL, your digital signature fees would break down as follows:
    1st EGBC digital signature: $140 + $185 = $325
    2nd APEGA digital signature: $75
    3rd PEGNL digital signature: $75
    Total for first year: $475 for all three signatures
    Total for second year: $335 for all three signatures

  • Why should I pay for an image of my signature?

    You are not paying for an image. You are subscribing to a government grade digital signature service issued by your association. The cost of this service is aligned with the market for this type of service and since it is cyber security-related, it does require continuous maintenance and rigor to operate. Essentially, our digital signatures are used by government agencies, land titles, Transportation, Energy, etc. We are not allowed to fail as a trust network for all our partners.
