Significant amendments to the Land Title Act are coming into force on November 15, 2019.  Most notably, Part 10.1, which governs electronic filing, is being repealed and replaced to clarify and simplify the legislation.

 While the current electronic filing scheme is largely being retained, the new Part 10.1 will:

  • Provide flexibility to account for future changes in technology and processes.
  • Enable the streamlining of various forms of electronic filing.
  • Retain, clarify and simplify the current electronic filing provisions.

Accompanying the amended legislation in November are revised Director’s Directions for e-filing and new form templates for all land title forms. The Director of Land Titles will issue a detailed description of the revised legislation in upcoming communications.  

The new form templates will be available for download only by July 25.  Prior versions of all land title forms will be retired in November.
