A View to the Future

2017

Summary

“Can anyone really predict the future? Allan Kay (then of Apple Corporation) suggested in 1989 that “the best way to predict the future is to invent it. This is the century in which you can be proactive about the future; you don’t have to be reactive.” Without a doubt, predicting is a challenging task! It is daunting, given the broad array of variables, participants and complexities in the property rights regimes underpinned by the Canada Lands Surveys System (CLSS). Yet, to plan effectively it is imperative that the most probable scenario for the future operating environment on Canada Lands be developed, based on well-defined trends and the aspirations and values of Canadian society. This compilation of ideas is based on numerous conversations with users and stakeholders of the survey system including extensive input from employees of the Surveyor General Branch (SGB) and members of the Association of Canada Lands Surveyors (ACLS). It has been written to provide a view to the future, both near (1 to 2 years) and medium (3 to 5 years), and perhaps help to articulate an optimum future vision for the CLSS. Some parts will therefore be clearly related to trends supported by empirical evidence; others will be a synthesis of visioning from various sources that provide a longer term view of the land survey system of the future”--p. 1.
