Palliser Surveys was established in December of 2012, created by Jamie & Rheanne Lehmkuhl from Elrose SK. As the only employees of Palliser at that time, it was thought that we would work primarily inside the bounds of west central Saskatchewan, which is inside the Palliser Triangle. The Palliser Triangle is an area of Canadian prairies, proclaimed by Captain John Palliser, to be unfit for settlers because of the arid climate. Being located inside the Palliser Triangle, and as a tribute John Palliser, the Palliser Surveys name was born. The shape of the Palliser logo also approximates the shape of the Palliser Triangle.
As Palliser Surveys evolved, the area that Palliser provides service to is certainly not limited to the geographic bounds of the Palliser Triangle.

I attended University and graduated with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Engineering in 2002. I articled under W.J.Peters, S.L.S. in 2009 and received my Saskatchewan Land Surveyors Commission #308 in 2010.
I have been in the survey industry for a total of 17 years. I have specialized in Construction related surveys and Cadastral Surveys (surveys related to subdivisions and property lines). When it comes to personal property, I understand that there are usually time sensitivities and I always do my best to expediate the work.
I enjoy spending time at the farm, and making the best of the seemingly short summers with my family at the Lake.
I received my Diploma in Geomatics Engineering from Lethbridge College in 2007. Starting in the summer of 2006 with Peters Surveys I worked briefly as a survey assistant and quickly progressed to the role of Crew Chief. I worked with Peters Surveys until 2008. I then spent 6 months living and working in New Zealand on a golf course. After returning from abroad I took up a position in the mining industry as an Underground Mine Surveyor at SeaBee Mine Site in Northern Saskatchewan. In 2010 I accepted an Underground Mine Surveyor position at the Agrium Vanscoy Potash Mine. In 2013 I started working part-time with Palliser Surveys, between shifts at the mine. In 2015 I made the move permanently to Palliser Surveys working as a Project Manager. I received my CBEPS Certificate of Completion in 2018 and am currently working towards my SLS commission and hopes to complete the process in summer 2022.
Me my wife Lindsay and three children live in Rosthern Sask and are very active in the community. I am the president of the local senior hockey team and also manages and play. I coach minor hockey and baseball, and also sits on the Minor Hockey Board. When I have any free time you will find me at the golf course in the summer or rink in the winter.
I started surveying in the summer time during high school in 1995 and began my career fulltime in 1997 after graduating high school. I started Surveying with Peters Surveys in Saskatoon and since then have surveyed all over Saskatchewan and Alberta.
I have been involved in numerous types of surveys including parcel surveys, oil and gas surveys of well sites, pipelines and plant sites, large scale construction sites (Telus Spark Science Centre, The Bow Building, Walmart Distribution Centre, Chinook Mall Expansion and Crossiron Mills Mall) in Calgary and development of entire communities in Chestermere (Rainbow Falls) and Cochrane (The Quarry district).
In my spare time, I enjoy camping with my family, getting out on the golf course, playing slow pitch and cruising around on my motorcycle.
