New Website Being Launched

The ASPB website is being updated in stages – on December 30, the store was launched, allowing folks to register for workshops. On January 1, members will be able to renew their fees using the new website. The public side of the site will be updated in February. Please bear with us while we work through these changes – if you see a notice that the site is down for maintenance, please check back in a few hours.

Applicants will be able to see the status of their application! This new feature is still being developed, and we have numerous applications to go through… please be patient while we work through this process!


Welcome to the home of the Alberta Society of Professional Biologists (ASPB). As a professional society and self-regulating body, the ASPB is committed to the promotion of excellence in the practice of biology.

The ASPB represents biologists in government, industry, consulting, education, not for profit and enforcement. The Society’s main purpose is to regulate the professional practice of biology in the Province of Alberta to protect the interests of the public. The ASPB is the only organization that is registered under Provincial laws, and it achieved this status in 1991 after approval of The Professional Biologists Regulation and the Alberta Professional and Occupational Associations Registration Act. Registration of the Society gives its members the exclusive use of the title “Professional Biologist” and its abbreviation “P. Biol.”
