The Director of Land Titles (the Director) has designated the supporting documents that may be submitted electronically. As outlined in PDF iconDirector's Requirement 03-11 Electronic Land Title Forms and Supporting Documents, a supporting document must be a scanned image of the original that is attached to either:

  • a Declaration
  • a Form 17, or
  • a Strata Property Act Form

An electronic Declaration is used only in support of an electronic document. The Declaration is appended automatically at the end of the document it supports.

The following supporting documents may be described in or attached as an image to a Declaration:

  • a Form F under the Strata Property Act
  • an election and authorization to proceed under section 216(2)(b) of the Land Title Act, and
  • a statutory Declaration

 The following may be a true copy rather than the original:

  • a Form F under the Strata Property Act, and
  • an affidavit in accordance with section 49 of the Land Title Act.

If the supporting document is a requirement of an electronic application (other than Form 17 or Strata Property Act form), a Declaration form must be included with the application, along with the supporting document attached.

The most common items to attach to an electronic Declaration are:

  • an affidavit in accordance with s. 49 of the Land Title Act
  • an election and authorization to proceed under s. 216(2)(b) of the Land Title Act
  • Form F under the Strata Property Act
  • an issue identified by examiners in official defect notices
  • a statutory Declaration
  • a corporate certificate
  • Ministerial Order or certified copy
  • Certificate of Consent of Presbytery or Conference
  • Trust Agreement

From time to time, the Director may authorize additional supporting documents.
