Government of Manitoba proclaims a new Act for Manitoba Land Surveyors

On March 31, 2016, the Government of Manitoba repealed the old Land Surveyors Act and proclaimed a new Act in its place. This new Act will be referred to as The Land Surveyors Act, (C.C.S.M. c. L60).

The modernization of the Act will ensure the open and fair governance of the profession by including public representatives on the council, protecting the public with the greater ability to prosecute unlicensed practice, and serve to reinforce the duties and responsibilities of members of the Association of Manitoba Land Surveyors (AMLS).

To ensure that the interests of the public are maintained to the highest level, the Association of Manitoba Land Surveyors sets the standards of practice, investigates complaints, and regulates the conduct of its members. Only a Manitoba Land Surveyor has the legal authority and expertise to:

i. properly determine and certify the legal property boundaries of a parcel of land whether on the ground, under water, or in airspace;

ii. certify the location of anything relative to a property boundary;

iii. establish, maintain, and certify geodetic control points for boundary determination; and

iv. establish photogrammetric mapping or remotely sensed data control for boundary determination.

The Association of Manitoba Land Surveyors, 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). The Land Surveyors Act regulates the practice of land surveying to protect the public’s interest in the delivery of land surveying services by ensuring the competence, integrity and independence of its members and the viability and security of the land tenure system in Manitoba.
