To be a land surveyor, you need a degree in geomatics or survey engineering or a community college program in survey science or geomatics technology with additional credits. You must also pass the official land surveyor examinations. You need to article for one- to three-years and pass professional land survey examinations for a federal or provincial licence. To practise in British Columbia and Quebec, you must be a member of the provincial professional land surveyor association.
Most recent entrants have an undergraduate university degree, and almost 3 in 20 have a graduate degree.
