Welcome to the Canadian Underground Forum
Awareness of the human and economic cost of not knowing the location of underground utilities and other infrastructure has grown dramatically in the last few years. At this forum we will hear from leaders of relatively new companies or startups that are providing technology that has begun to seriously impact our ability to detect, record and share accurate location data about underground infrastructure. We will also hear about the latest developments in standards including the latest ASCE utility as-built standard. Finally, the forum will host a panel discussion on the role of government in accurate mapping of underground utilities and other infrastructure with panelists from leading international underground initiatives including the U.K. Government's National Underground Asset Registry and the State of Colorado Department of Transportation Public Services as well as Canadian initiatives at Public Services and Procurement Canada and Infrastructure Ontario.
