The Land Surveyors Association of Jamaica (LSAJ) was established in 1928.  As professional land surveyors we have a responsibility to improve the quality of the services we offer.  Our clients
rely on us to keep them informed of changes in laws and regulations. We must stay abreast of our rapidly changing technology.  One of our prime objectives is to protect the interest of the public in land related matters.  It is our pleasure to share information about the surveying profession through this medium.

 
Mission
To promote the highest level of professional practice amongst its members in the delivery of high quality and efficient service to their clients.
 
Aims and Objectives
  • To support and protect the character, status, and interests of the profession of the
    land surveyor generally, and particularly of land surveyors practicing in the Island of Jamaica.

  • To promote honourable practice, to repress malpractice, to settle disputed points of
    practice, and to decide all questions of professional usage or courtesy between and amongst land surveyors in Jamaica.

  • To consider all questions affecting the interests of the said profession, and if necessary, to petition the government and legislature of Jamaica, and other persons and bodies, to promote deputations in relation thereto, and to procure any changes of Law of practice,
    and the promotion or improvement in the principles and methods of surveying.

  • To encourage the study of Surveying by Student Surveyors.
