About the BCLS Foundation

The two primary objectives of the BC Land Surveyors Foundation are to:

  • create and maintain a library that houses historical and current reference material related to the surveying industry in British Columbia; and
  • financially assist students who wish to pursue careers in surveying by providing scholarships and bursaries.

Support the Foundation

The BCLS Foundation Trustees would like to invite all land surveyors to help support these worthy causes through financial contributions. If you are interested and willing to donate, you may contribute by cheque or credit card. You might also like to consider leaving a legacy donation through your will to contribute to existing scholarships or to establish a new scholarship in your name.

You can do this by stating in your Will that the bequest should be made to:

The BC Land Surveyors Foundation
Suite 301-2400 Bevan Avenue
Sidney, BC V8L 1W1


Donations by credit card can be given by calling our Association office: 250-655-7222. All cheques should be made payable to the BC Land Surveyors Foundation and mailed to the Association office. Please provide your name(s) and mailing address so a receipt can be forwarded to you.

Our thanks to you for helping to ensure the future of the land surveying profession.

Please note that if you volunteer your time for the Association on the Board, a Panel, or a Committee and are entitled to an honorary payment, you can choose to have the honorarium donated to the Foundation instead of accepting it as taxable income.
