Have you ever wondered what those people at MNRF do? If you are an Ontario Land Surveyor working in the north (north of the French River) or working in cottage country, you likely have regular contact with OSG staff. If you are a southern Ontario Land Surveyor, maybe not so much. But you may be surprised to learn how OSG information and activities can impact your products and services regardless of where you practice in the Province. This presentation will outline the primary functions and commitments of the Office with a goal of raising awareness and providing contacts for products and information to enhance your service offerings to your clients.
