Fondée en 1882, la Corporation des arpenteurs-géomètres du Québec devient l'Ordre des arpenteurs-géomètres du Québec en 1974. L'Ordre a pour principale fonction d'assurer la protection du public par l'entremise de l'inspection professionnelle, la formation continue et la discipline. Il détermine également les normes de pratique et les règlements qui guident les membres dans leurs activit és professionnelles.
L'Ordre regroupe l'ensemble des personnes habilitées à exercer de façon exclusive la profession d'arpenteur-géomètre au Québec. Il compte actuellement près de 1 000 membres. Il est administré par un Conseil d’administration constitué de quatorze administrateurs, dont trois sont nommés par l'Office des professions pour représenter le public.
Pour devenir membre de l'Ordre des arpenteurs-géomètres du Québec et obtenir un permis d'exercice de la profession, une personne doit satisfaire aux exigences établies par la Loi sur les arpenteurs-géomètres, dont notamment l'obtention d'un diplôme universitaire reconnu, la réussite d'examens d'admission et la réalisation d'un stage de formation.
The Underhill Group of Companies has its origin in the partnership of two Land Surveyors—F. Claire and James T. Underhill. The partnership, Underhill & Underhill, was formed in 1912 and operates to this day providing cadastral land survey services in British Columbia.
In the 1950s, Underhill Engineering Ltd. was established to meet a growing need for civil engineering services. Over the years, the business of Underhill Engineering Ltd. became increasingly focused on surveying (engineering, geodetic, GPS, general consulting) and mapping (cadastral, topographic, GIS, AM/FM). The industry we now find ourselves in has come to be known as geomatics. In 1998, Underhill Engineering Ltd. was renamed Underhill Geomatics Ltd. to reflect the focus of the business.
In 1969, Underhill opened an office in Whitehorse, Yukon to better serve northern Canada. Since 1986 our firm has performed approximately 90 First Nations land claim surveys, making Underhill Geomatics Ltd. the leading land claim survey firm in Canada.
Underhill’s pioneering efforts in the development and applications of geomatics technology are numerous. Underhill was an early adopter of a number of technologies which are now commonplace. These include: Electronic Distance Measurement (EDM) in the 1950s, digital computing in the early 1960s (vacuum tubes—no less!), development and applications of Computer Aided Design (CAD) and engineering software in the 1970s, application of Global Positioning Technology (GPS) to geodetic and mapping surveys in the mid-80s, consulting related to Automated Mapping/Facilities Management (AM/FM), and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in the late 1980s.
The Underhill group of companies’ organizational structure stems from the original partnership of its founders. Their sense of equity, co-operation, and responsibility to their employees and community pervades the philosophy of the organization to this day. Our organizational and management philosophy encourages the open exchange of ideas and promotes innovation in all activities. Team building, now considered a preferred approach to technical organizational management, has been an integral part of our company philosophy since its inception. The values of our founders fit well into the cost- and quality-conscious world of today.
The Surveys Section is part of the Provincial Programs Branch within the Operations Division of Environment and Parks, Government of Alberta. The Section is managed by the Director of Surveys who is an Alberta Land Surveyor and is designated as the Director by the Minister of Environment and Parks. In addition, the Director of Surveys is the Alberta Boundary Commissioner as designated by the Lieutenant Governor in Council, Alberta.
It is through the Director of Surveys that the Minister administers the Surveys Act and the Boundary Surveys Act. Under the Surveys Act, the Director of Surveys is responsible for co-ordinating the establishment, maintenance and preservation of the provincial land survey system and for providing the provincial geodetic spatial referencing system. Under the Boundary Surveys Act, the Director of Surveys (i.e., the Alberta Boundary Commissioner) is responsible for any survey and demarcation of the boundary line between Alberta and any adjoining province or the Northwest Territories. These responsibilities are accomplished through the Land Surveys and Geodetic Control programs.
Key elements of the Land Surveys program are administration of legislation, monitoring surveying standards, provision of advisory services, and information management. Key elements of the Geodetic Control program are management of the geodetic spatial referencing system, distribution of related data, implementation of spatial referencing design alternatives, and liaison with stakeholders. Also, while the Director of Surveys has no direct responsibility for management of activities related to Public Land dispositions, the Director does play an ancillary role in defining standards for surveys carried out for Public Land dispositions.

COGS is a specialized technology campus of the Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC) and it has been providing Geomatics related training since 1948. The Centre is an internationally recognized training facility in the field of applied geography. The facility, located in the heart of the Annapolis Valley, is dedicated to Geomatics and is supported by an experienced faculty, modern, up-do-date equipment, computer labs and current versions of most Geomatics software.
COGS offers a new two year diploma in Geographic Sciences. Students will do a foundation year with broad exposure to geographic decision making and Geomatics tools followed by a chosen second year concentration in Cartography, Community and Environmental Planning, GIS, or Remote Sensing Technologies. COGS offers surveying training with Survey Technician and Geomatics Engineering Technology programs.
For students with previous diplomas and degrees, the Centre offers advanced diploma programs in Geographic Sciences and Marine Geomatics. Students in the Advanced Geographic Sciences Diploma can specialize in Remote Sensing, Geographic Information Systems, and GIS for Business. Graduates from our Advanced Diplomas may also be eligible to continue on in a joint Masters in Applied Geomatics with Acadia University. Credits are also recognized at other learning institutions, including St. Francis Xavier University, Dalhousie University and the University of New Brunswick.
The NSCC and COGS also host the Applied Geomatics Research Group (AGRG) which was founded in January 2000. AGRG began by using Geomatics tools for environmental research in the Annapolis Valley and since then research has expanded to include global partners from the private and public sectors. Today the entire gamut of geomatics technologies is employed to conduct vital environmental research, and create economic opportunity by partnering with innovative organizations and private industries. University graduates or young scientists can further their education with the research group through industry internships, joint M.Sc. degrees or practicums and workshops.
