Association of Canada Lands Surveyors (ACLS)
The Association of Canada Lands Surveyors is not-for-profit, non governmental organization that governs the activities of its members in the field of cadastral (boundary or legal) surveying.
Cadastral surveying is typically governed by provincial legislation. In fact, each Canadian province has a surveying association which is responsible for regulating its members. Provincial legislation does not govern surveying on “Canada Lands”, so the ACLS comes in as the eleventh surveying association.
A full time staff including an Executive Director/Registrar/Secretary Treasurer, his Assistant, an Administrative Assistant, a Communications and Membership Services Administrator, and a part time Practice Review Manager provide the administrative support for the organization. A number of volunteer committees provide the balance of the framework for the Association to meet its objectives.
