Exception: At this time any plan that is being submitted to the Crown Land Registry will continue to use the traditional PDF Form. This means any plan that has traditionally been submitted using the “Survey Plan Submission to Surveyor General” (CLRS) Form will continue to use this PDF form and submit it via EFS after filling out the CLRS Form with Adobe Acrobat.

Enhancements to Web Filing are anticipated in the future to incorporate CLRS Form submission. The Dataset Exemption Request Form is also not currently available through Web Filing.

For forms submitted to the land title office, go to Land Title Forms.
