On June 21st 1967 at 2:30 EST. a simultaneous dedication in all Capital cities of Canada took place to honour the land surveyors of this country. The twelve Centennial monuments and plaques were unveiled to the public showing the important part the surveyor played in the exploration and mapping of our nation. Each capital city will have a brass cap which is a First Post in a unified system of precisely co-ordinated survey points. Some monuments have a document cache or a time capsule encased to be opened on our 200th birthday.
The first survey of land in Canada was made in 1625 on the St. Charles River near the City of Quebec and was made by the man recognized as Canada's first surveyor, Samuel de Champlain.
Early surveyors of New Brunswick were K.D.Brown, T.Menzies, T.H.Ramsey
The Transit was first made in 1831 by Philadelphian William Young. It was adapted from the Theodolite that was invented in 1720 by John Sisson of England.
