Description:
Canadian Benchmarks will include several types of permanently fixed survey markers, monuments or other devices that are used for taking accurate measurements within Canada.

Expanded Description:
From the Canadian Spatial Reference System's online database the following benchmarks will be in this category:

Canadian Base Network (NAD83CSRS) - 154 Total Stations
Special Purpose 3-D Network (NAD83CSRS) - 3,082 Total Stations
Horizontal Control Network 2-D (NAD83) - 25,677 Total Stations
Primary Vertical Control Network (CGVD28) - 81,301 Total Stations
Canadian Gravity Standardization Net (CGSN) - 5,737 Total Stations

Other Databases

Geological Survey of Canada Coastal Monitoring (GSC) - ? Total Stations
TWL Regional Station Benchmark Database
MASCOT (BC database) has a huge number of benchmarks that overlap existing databases. This will need to be resolved before their types can be setup.
COSINE (ON) also has a large database. I have not yet even looked at this one.

Canada-US Boundary Markers - The entire border has various types of markers delineating the location of the international boundary. Some of these markers are found in the CSRS database while others are not. At the present time there is no special category for them. Perhaps there should be as they are both US and Canada based benchmarks. For more information visit the International Boundary Commission

Other types may follow.

Also, there will be a benchmark type for ones that do not fit into the pre-defined categories. If there are any important types that I have missed you can e-mail me and it may added as one of the official types.

Instructions for Posting a Canadian Benchmarks Waymark:
To post a new waymark, the current requirements are to select the correct benchmark type, give the unique designation, marker type, condition and provide as much description as possible about the site. A PHOTO of the benchmark is required unless it is physically impossible to do so. In that case a PHOTO of the general area is required that shows why you can't take a photo of the benchmark. If possible, it would be nice to include several photos of the general area to give potential finders an idea of what the area is like. Lastly, please use a unique Waymark name for your benchmark. Preferably the ID# stamped on the benchmark. If no ID# is visible then make up a name unique to that location. Note that these requirements may change over time. I have included some examples of what is available from online databases. This does not mean that anyone can add waymarks based on the information available from online databases. A site visit is normally required and your own photo to confirm the status of the site.

It is our goal to pre-populate several sub-categories with information from existing databases. (much like the US version at geocaching.com). Whether or not that will be possible remains to be determined. In the meantime this category is open for all individuals to submit new waymarks.

Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
To post a log for any benchmark, a photo will be required. When visiting any site please respect any private property rights that may exist. Given the number and age of the benchmarks, they may not be all accessible or even exist at this time.
