Bryan Bates was born in Calgary in January 1975. He graduated from Bert Church High School of Airdrie in 1992 and went on to receive a B.Sc. in Geomatics Engineering from the University of Calgary in 1997.

Alberta Land Surveyors I.J. Stuart and M.D. Prevost served as Bryan's principals during his term of articles from November 1999 to December 2001.

Bryan was one of a handful of articled students who participated in the pilot project to allow students to submit three project reports instead of a technical report. The submissions dealt with a real property report survey, a subdivision survey and a re¬establishment survey performed during a pipeline right-of-way survey.

Bryan holds a commission as a British Columbia Land Surveyor and a Canada Lands Surveyor. He is also a professional engineer.

He served on the ALSA Convention and Social Committee, the Manual of Standard Practice Committee in British Columbia and is currently on the ALSA Registration Committee.

Hobbies include drag racing, camping, fishing, hiking and weight¬lifting. He also holds a competition drag racing licence from the NHRA.
