COVID-19 Notice: LTSA Front Counters Open By Appointment Only

Please be aware that LTSA’s Land Title Office front counters are open by appointment only. A new booking and visiting procedure is in place to protect the safety of our customers and staff. Customers can contact the Customer Service Centre to book an in-person visit. Please visit ltsa.ca or follow us on Twitter for more information.

As announced on March 10, 2021, the Director of Land Titles has now retired the PDF versions of four land title forms forms effective September 12, 2021. These forms must be submitted using Web Filing in myLTSA. PDF versions of these forms will only be accepted if they were executed or electronically signed before September 12, 2021.

By law, LTSA staff are not permitted to provide legal advice or assist in completing forms. If you require assistance, please contact a legal professional who can give you advice on compliance with these statutory forms and related matters.

The Land Title Act authorizes the Director of Land Titles to approve forms used by applicants when making applications under the Act. The Land Title Electronic Forms Guidebook (the “Green Book”) contains detailed instructions for most of these forms.

Electronic forms are designed to be filled out using Adobe Acrobat (Standard or Professional edition) in a version listed in the myLTSA System Requirements. The forms cannot be completed with the free Adobe Reader software.

For forms submitted to the Surveyor General, go to Surveyor General Forms.

For forms submitted to the Land Owner Transparency Registry, go to LandTransparency.ca
