Lloydminster, Alberta in 1952 was the birthplace of Barry Clarkson. He graduated from high school in Lloydminster in 1972 and attended the University of Alberta studying civil engineering from 1974-1976.

Gordon Repp, ALS served as Barry's principal from July to December 1985. The topic of the technical report submitted as part of the qualifying examination was "Inland Riparian Rights." Barry's commission as an Alberta Land Surveyor was granted on January 31, 1991.

Barry also holds commissions as a Saskatchewan Land Surveyor and membership in the Canadian Institute of Surveying & Mapping.

Experience in the surveying profession began with Midwest Surveys where Barry was employed as a chainman under H.M. Knitter, ALS. He worked in Midwest's other offices over the years in Estevan, Regina and Medicine Hat. Most of his surveying experience has been oil related.

Barry tells us that enjoys many outdoor activities, but primarily likes hunting, fishing and skiing.
