Administrative history

As early as 1887 (Bylaw #32), there is evidence that land surveying was among the functions to be considered and reported by the Board of Works. For the majority of its long and consistent existence, the Surveys Branch may be found as an independent branch within the Engineering Department/Engineering Services, and it generally reported to the Deputy City Engineer.
