The Association of Professional Biology (APB) represents biology professionals practicing in Western Canada (RPBios, PBiol, RBTechs, BITs, Trainees and Student members). Established under the Society Act as a not-for-profit organization, APB is administered by a Board of Directors elected annually. APB members specialize in the study, management or conservation of living organisms and their habitats. Members of APB work in a wide variety of fields including, but not limited to, environmental impact assessment, fish and wildlife management, entomology, and microbiology.
The focus of the APB is to support its biology professional members directly and indirectly by promoting the professional practice of applied biology.
