You need to know the position of the limits of your property? You want to put up a fence?. Then you need your property to be staked.
Staking is the process by which a land surveyor determines the position of the limits of a property. He does so by placing boundary marks, usually steel markers, at each corner of the property.

The process of staking is governed by the Rules and regulations regarding the processes of staking and of a layout survey, of the Ordre des arpenteurs-géomètres du Québec (L.R.Q., c.A-23, r.11).
