Land Registration and Information

Land Registry

SNB maintains a network of registries across the province where legal plans and documents related to the ownership of real property can be registered and made available for public scrutiny. The records in the Registries provide land ownership information dating back to the issuance of the original crown grants (over two hundred years of history for some parts of the province). Instruments registered or filed in the registry include deeds, mortgages, wills, subdivision plans, etc.
