We just received the Canadian Board of Examiners for Professional Surveyors (CBEPS) final report. We are pleased to announce that our Geomatics Engineering program awarded a Level-2 CBEPS accreditation in meeting the CBEPS national syllabus subjects. CBEPS establishes, assesses and certifies the academic qualifications of individuals who apply to become land surveyors and/or geomatics professionals in Canada, except for Ontario and Quebec.
Professional cadastral surveying in Canada is regulated by individual statutes in the ten Canadian provinces and by the Canada Lands Surveys Act for Canada Lands. In general, Canada Lands consist of the Northern Territories, Indian Reserves, National Parks and Canada’s Offshore areas. In order to practice cadastral surveying at the professional level in Canada, an individual must be commissioned and/or licensed by the provincial surveying association in the province where one wishes to practice, and in the case of Canada Lands, by the Association of Canada Lands Surveyors (ACLS).
To get their CBEPS Certificate of Completion, graduates from our Geomatics Engineering program will have to write the CBEPS examinations C10 (Land Use Planning and the Economics of Land Development) and C12 (Hydrographic Surveying).
