Registration as an ALS

The Alberta Land Surveyors' Association (ALSA) is a professional regulatory organization responsible for the examination, licensing, and registration of cadastral surveyors in Alberta.

The ALSA has established a set of high-level core competencies that applicants must have prior to registration as a professional member to ensure the public is protected.

There are three routes to becoming an Alberta Land Surveyor.

The first and most common route is for applicants who are not currently licensed as a land surveyor anywhere else. This route involves having the applicant’s academic credentials evaluated, obtaining field and office experience and passing a series of professional examinations.

Second, an applicant who is already licensed as a land surveyor elsewhere in Canada will be required to pass one jurisdiction-specific examination.

Third, an applicant who is already licensed as a land surveyor in another country must have their academic credentials evaluated before the Registration Committee assesses what examinations they may be required to complete.
