Customers are advised that changes are coming to Statutory Right of Way (SRW) applications affecting land within the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) starting September 30, 2020.

Due to an amendment to the Agricultural Land Commission Act, a new section 18.1 has been added that requires SRW applications affecting land within the ALR to be accompanied by the notice of SRW form issued by the Agricultural Land Commission (ALC).

In practice, this means that the Form C Charge SRW application must be accompanied by a Declaration form that appends the notice of SRW form issued by the ALC. The Registrar will not accept any SRW applications submitted on or after September 30, 2020 affecting land within the ALR that do not meet these requirements.

Customers are asked to contact the Agricultural Land Commission to get the Notice of SRW form and address any questions you may have about the Act or its amendments.
