Products and solutions for the municipal sector.
From the preparation of single-lot subdivisions to multi-lot developments, we understand the complexities that can come with municipal projects and have been mastering the regulatory and, at times, lengthy approval process for years. We know you don’t rush things and neither do we. We’re in it for the long haul, here to support your project from start to finish.
When it comes to rural and urban municipal projects, conventional survey methods can often be tedious. With the benefits of improved safety, compressed schedules, and reduced costs, we use advanced technologies, like laser scanning and mobile mapping systems (MMS), for data capture and asset management. Our Cartography, GIS, and CAD experts can provide a wide range of maps, reports, visualizations, and applications to support your decision-making process and help you design and build with confidence.
Some of our municipal services include:
- Boundary determination and interpretation
- Registered land titles plans

- Right-of-way surveys
- Topographic surveys
- Indigenous land claims and settlements
- Residential, commercial, and industrial surveys

“The expertise and efficiency of your team on this transaction was excellent. There were so many moving parts, it would have been impossible to pull it off without an expert group of surveyors leading the way on the plans.”– Partner, Law Firm
“In our larger Alberta based FTTH program, we used 3 different survey companies and GeoVerra stood out as the best performing vendor. They had the best speed and quality of deliverables, which were delivered reliably on time without any unexpected additions. If the program expands further in the future we will definitely call GeoVerra first!”– Canadian Telecommunications Client
PADCOM, Russell McAuley Deposit
The Potash and Agri Development Corporation of Manitoba (PADCOM) engaged GeoVerra to provide surveying support and expertise in navigating the regulatory environment for the province’s first and only potash mine at the Russell McAuley Deposit. Having previously helped define the regulations for oil and gas exploration in Manitoba, GeoVerra was able to help navigate the similar regulatory environment of this mining project, while working closely with the PADCOM drilling and reservoir engineers to determine the best trajectory for the first two potash production wells. By avoiding troublesome mineral ownership rights and understanding road allowance easements, the team saved costs, minimized royalty issues, expedited environmental approvals, and maximized its pay zone reach.
