The Canadian Fire Underwriters\' Association was founded in 1883 for the purpose of standardizing fire insurance regulations. Up to the year 1918, the maps were prepared by the Chas. E.

This agreement ended in 1918, and the Canadian Fire Underwriters\' Association started their own mapmaking process and was renamed the Underwriters? Survey Bureau Limited. At the same time they purchased the exclusive rights from the Chas. E. Goad company to revise and reprint their maps. The Goad Company continued to operate until 1930 and in 1931 the Underwriters? Survey Bureau Limited acquired all the assets of the Chas. E. Goad Company. They continued to produce various fire insurance plans for cities and towns in Ontario, Quebec, and the Martimes.
