Significant amendments to the Land Title Act are coming into force on November 15, 2019.  As a result, the Director of Land Titles has issued revised versions of all land title form templates. The forms are available for download but cannot be submitted until November 15, 2019.  

The forms are being made available now to enable practitioners to prepare and plan for the November 15, 2019 retirement of the current versions of land title forms. Current versions of land title forms will be accepted if they were executed or e-signed before November 15, 2019. The Application to Deposit Plan form is the exception. The current version of the Application to Deposit Plan will remain active until February 28, 2020, giving practitioners time to secure required signatures on complex survey packages that are not yet ready for submission on November 15, 2019.

New Form Changes
The updated forms contain new electronic signature certification statements. The certification statements have been updated to comply with amendments to Part 10.1 of the Land Title Act, which governs electronic filing. 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.
