Meet Cristin, LTSA’s Surveyor General

Meet our Surveyor General, Cristin Schlossberger. Cristin was appointed as Surveyor General by LTSA on April 1st, 2019. Prior to joining LTSA in 2009, she worked as a registered BC land surveyor. She was drawn to the profession through her love of solving complex problems, the outdoors and mathematics. Cristen, like many land surveyors, feels a deep connection to the history of BC, recognizing their work often follows in the literal footsteps of the original surveyors of the land.

The first cadastral survey of Vancouver Island took place in 1851. From 1864 to 1871, the Surveyor General was an elected official who held the title of Chief Commissioner of Lands and Works. In 1873, the Surveyor General’s function was detached from the Chief Commissioner’s role and became a position in its own right.

Between 1871 and 2022, there have been 22 Surveyor Generals of BC. To learn more about the history of the Surveyor General and how the role has changed over the years, visit
