The Cadastral Professional Stream (CPS) has been established for members with an interest in, or who specialise in cadastral surveying.

The stream's main role is to facilitate networking and sharing of information and resources related to cadastral surveying.

CPS has a leadership team that meets regularly to facilitate activities. The role of the team is defined in the Cadastral Stream Terms of Reference.

The goal of the CPS is for members to actively participate in the ongoing advancement of knowledge, skills, techniques, resources and relevance of cadastral surveying. Members are encouraged to participate through the use of the Member's Forum, through participation at branch meetings and on special project committees, through providing continuing professional development and seminars and through appointment to the leadership team.
