Association of Ontario Land Surveyors

The Ontario Professional Surveyor magazine is the quarterly journal of the Association of Ontario Land Surveyors (AOLS), which was established in 1892. It is a self-governing association, responsible for the licensing and governance of professional land surveyors, in accordance with the Surveyors Act. As with all self-governing professions, the AOLS has a responsibility to ensure that the public interest is paramount.
