Reminder: New Land Title Forms

New forms must be used for filings after November 15, 2019

Significant amendments to the Land Title Act came into effect on November 15, 2019. As a result, new land title forms have been published and must be used for any new filings. Previous versions of forms will only be accepted if they were executed or e-signed before November 15, 2019. 

New E-filing Directions from the Director of Land Titles reflect amendments to Part 10.1 of the Land Title Act and replace the previous Directors Requirements related to e-filing. A summary of the changes due to Part 10.1 amendments is available for review.

Parallel amendments to Part 7.2 of the Land Act affect select Surveyor General forms.
