Welcome to ACLS-AATC – Association of Canada Lands Surveyors (ACLS)
The ACLS office is located on the ancestral lands of the Omàmìwininìwag (Algonquin) First Nation.
Surveyors apply mathematics, property law and use of the latest measurement technology to real-life situations. These professionals are enablers of industries that pump billions into the Canadian economy annually. Because of their expertise, surveyors are required whenever there is a need to create parcels of land and establish property boundaries.
The Association of Canada Lands Surveyors (ACLS) is the national licensing body for professionals surveying in the three Canadian territories, in the Federal parks, on Aboriginal reserves, on and under the surface of Canada’s oceans. The exclusive title attributed to these professionals is that of Canada Lands Surveyor (CLS).
Recognizing that professional surveyors have a lifelong learning responsibility, the ACLS implemented Mandatory Continuing Developments on January 1, 2011.
The ACLS manages the Canadian Hydrographer Certification scheme. For information on obtaining certification, click here.
