Our Atlantic Region encompasses all of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Islands and Newfoundland and Labrador. Our real property professionals include office accommodation specialists, architects, engineers, environmental scientists, real estate experts and asset and facility managers. Our work in delivering services is equally diverse; it includes construction and repairs to federal harbours and facilities, office renovations within the federal accommodations portfolio, management of space measurement, accessibility audits and management of construction design drawings of new and existing federal infrastructure.

As a Geomatics Officer you will be responsible for various tasks which may include: area measurement and space measurement, performing accessibility audits, developing CADD drawings and specifications for federal infrastructure projects, and other tasks that come up in day-to-day operations.
