TO ALL BRITISH COLUMBIA LAND SURVEYORS

Re: Integrated Survey Area No. 13 District of Delta, Official Plan and Coordinates

The Tsawwassen Final Agreement caused certain lands (the Tsawwassen Settlement Lands) to be removed from the jurisdiction of the District of Delta. As a result, the boundary of the Delta Integrated Survey Area has been amended under the authority of section 12(1) of the Land Survey Act.

In accordance with the authority provided in section 13(5) of the Land Survey Act, the extent of Integrated Survey Areas may be defined in an electronic format. Accordingly, the limits of Integrated Survey Area No. 13 are shown on the Online Cadastre. The Online Cadastre shows the location of the coordinate control monuments and the boundary of the integrated survey area on layers 'Survey Monuments' and 'Integrated Survey Areas' respectively.

The official coordinate listing for the Delta Integrated Survey Area is also published in an electronic format under the authority of section 13(5) of the Land Survey Act. It is available for viewing online or downloading from the Surveyor General Division section of the LTSA website. This web page displays a table of all Integrated Survey Areas in numerical order. The ISA number provides a link to the consolidated coordinate control monument listings.

With recent enhancements to the Online Cadastre website, a user may link to the MASCOT Survey Control Database to obtain control monument sketches and coordinate information. To invoke this function within the Online Cadastre, set "Survey Monuments" as the active layer and select a coordinate control monument with the identify tool. A MASCOT username and password are required.

Legal surveys within Integrated Survey Areas must be integrated according to Part 5 of the General Survey Instruction Rules.

Yours sincerely,
