ACPS
Association of the Chemical Profession of Saskatchewan (ACPS)

The Association of Chemical Profession of Saskatchewan (ACPS) is the voice for Professional Chemists in the Province of Saskatchewan. Along with our peer organizations in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, Quebec and Nova Scotia, and the Chemistry Professional Committee of the Canadian Society for Chemistry, the ACPS is part of a national movement to raise the profile and recognition of the Profession of Chemistry.

The ACPS is working towards legal recognition of the profession of chemistry, in line with our peers from across the country. Self-regulation of the profession will provide mobility and recognition for Saskatchewan chemists, and an essential means for Saskatchewan industry and government to recognize qualified professional chemists.
