Alberta Registers 1,000th Land Surveyor Print E-mail
Written by Alberta Land Surveyors’ Association   
Wednesday, 09 August 2017

August 9, 2017 - Ian Isackson, ALS, became the 1,000th person to be registered as a land surveyor in Alberta since the formation of the regulatory body, the Alberta Land Surveyors’ Association, in 1910.

“We welcome Mr. Isackson to the profession,” said Mike Fretwell, ALS, president of the Alberta Land Surveyors’ Association. He joins a long list of professionals who, in addition to being land surveyors have also served the province and the country as politicians, academics, entrepreneurs, and military veterans.

Alberta Land Surveyors establish and re-establish boundaries for urban and rural landowners, municipalities, developers and the resource sector. Boundaries help make good neighbours and provide confidence to everyone for the peaceful and orderly settlement in the province.

In order to be registered as an Alberta Land Surveyor, a person must ordinarily complete a minimum of two years of articling under the mentorship of an experienced land surveyor and pass a series of professional practice examinations.

However, as Mr. Isackson, who works at Meridian Surveys in Lloydminster, is also licensed as a Saskatchewan Land Surveyor, he only needed to pass an examination on Alberta-specific legislation – in keeping with interprovincial labour mobility agreements.

The province’s first Alberta Land Surveyor was Albert Belyea, He was president of the Alberta Land Surveyors' Association in 1922 and made an honorary life member in 1952.

About ALSA
The Alberta Land Surveyors' Association (ALSA) is a self-governing professional association legislated under the Land Surveyors Act. The Association regulates the practice of land surveying for the protection of the public and administration of the profession.
