Page 23 of 52 February 2018 | ST 23 T he 2018 Joint Conference of the Canadian Hydrographic Associa- tion and the Association of Canada Lands Surveyors will be held March 26 to 29 at the Victoria Conference Center, with guests staying at the Empress Hotel in Victo- ria, British Columbia. The Canadian Hydrographic Association is a national hydrographic organization in Canada embracing the dis- ciplines of hydrographic surveying, marine cartography, marine geodesy, offshore exploration, and tidal and cur- rents studies. The Association of Canada Lands Surveyors is the na- tional licensing body for professionals surveying in the three Canadian territories and the federal parks, on ab- original reserves, and on and under the surface of Can- ada's oceans. Location Victoria, the capital of British Columbia, sits on the southern end of Vancouver Island. With abundant parkland, it's known for outdoor activities. The city's chief industries are technology, food products, tourism, education, federal and provincial government administration, and services. Located at the maritime cross- roads of the Georgia Strait, Juan de Fuca Strait and many archipel- agos, Victoria is a paradise for boaters. Maritime traffic reaching the main entrance of the Canadian West Coast inevitably passes by this beautiful city, which is sur- rounded by a craggy coastline that has been, for a long time, a real challenge for hydrographers and land surveyors. Workshops, Technical Programs With more than 400 delegates expected to attend, the conference will include workshops on current industry topics and a full schedule of technical sessions on the latest issues, developments and applications in hydrography. More than 60 exhibit spaces will showcase the latest products, services and expertise. Half-day and full-day vendor workshops will be held Monday, March 26. On-the-Water Demonstrations Some exhibitors will be able to take small groups of delegates around the harbor to demonstrate the latest hy- drographic technologies.
