1982 - The First
Bishop reported that 1981-1982 had been a busy and productive year. The Land
Surveyors Act received royal assent. The amended Act allowed for the
establishment of surveyors’ corporations and
Hunter Surveys System Ltd. was
registered with permit number P001.
Council was busy with other legislative items. Council wrote to the Attorney
General expressing concern with the proposed amendments to the Land Titles Act
with the result that the amendment was delayed. Council also submitted a brief
to the Premier on the overall need for a land information system in Alberta.
- In other matters,
Dr. J.G. MacGregor’s book,
Vision of an Ordered Land, was published and the Association submitted
a brief on land information systems to the Premier.
The slow economy in 1982 led to a motion (defeated) that the Association
establish a mandatory minimum schedule of fees for survey services and another
one (carried) that Council immediately approach the Government of Alberta to
institute programs to generate employment in the field of land surveying during
these times of economic recession.
