How Much Does a Survey Cost?

How Much Does a Survey Cost?

The Alberta Land Surveyors’ Association encourages the public to discuss potential survey projects with an Alberta Land Surveyors prior to initiating any project. Discussions with an Alberta Land Surveyor about the specifics of the project should be undertaken to develop a better understanding of the costs and the complexity associated with the project. Some of the considerations that may impact costs include:


Availability of survey evidence defining boundaries:

  1. Current and historical title searches
  2. Other surveys in the area under consideration
  3. An Alberta Land Surveyor’s experience and resources available at the time of the project
  4. Travel and accommodation costs
  5. Application, endorsement, approval or record searching fees.


This list of considerations is not exhaustive but should form the basis for discussion prior to any project starting. It is incumbent on the public and the members of the Association to discuss potential projects so that a fair and reasonable value for the services being offered can be reached.
