The Association of Manitoba Land Surveyors (AMLS), established in 1881, is the oldest land surveying association in Canada. The AMLS is a professional, self-governing body operating under The Land Surveyors Act (Manitoba), which regulates the practice of land surveying for the protection of the public and administration of the profession.
The Association of Manitoba Land Surveyors sets the standards of practice,
continuing education, conduct of members and investigates complaints from the public.
Only a Manitoba Land Surveyor has the legal authority and expertise to properly define the legal boundaries of a parcel of land either on the ground or on paper.
