The Association of Manitoba Land Surveyors is a professional, self-governing body operating under The Land Surveyors Act (Manitoba) and regulates the practice of land surveying for the protection of the public and administration of the profession.
Land surveyors are the only persons recognized by law to provide an expert opinion on the location of property boundaries. This opinion often takes the form of a plan, report, and placement of property corner markers, and is based on an analysis of documentary research and field measurements. The public widely recognizes this professional service as it is commonly used to facilitate the purchase and financing of residential and commercial real estate.
The Association of Manitoba Land Surveyors is Canada's first provincial land surveyors association and is a member of Professional Surveyors Canada.
