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. 
These people hold the exclusive title of Canada Lands Surveyors (CLS). Surveyors are the experts in the science of measurement and positioning and use these skills to accurately measure the true dimensions of property. This expertise is used to prepare plot plans, real property reports, place boundary markers, and other activities ensuring the accuracy of public property records.

Recognizing that professional surveyors have a lifelong learning responsibility, the ACLS implemented Mandatory Continuing Developments on January 1st, 2011.
