The Title to Certain Lands Act

WHEREAS the Minister of Justice has caused this Act to be prepared in English and French for re-enactment in accordance with a judgment dated June 13,1985 and an order dated November 4, 1985 of the Supreme Court of Canada:

NOW THEREFORE HER MAJESTY, by and with the advice and consent of the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba, enacts as follows:

Authority to amend memorials and certificates of title

1(1)       Where the original grant of land from the Crown was a transfer under The Real Property Act, letters patent or grant in any other form from the Crown in right of the province, and the memorial of registration of the transfer, letters patent or grant in any other form from the Crown entered on the certificate of title to the land standing in the name of the Crown does not expressly show that the mines and minerals were not conveyed by the transfer, the district registrar, on the request of the Minister of Energy and Mines, shall

(a) amend the memorial by making such entries as the district registrar may deem necessary to show that the certificate of title has not been cancelled as to the mines and minerals; and

(b) amend the certificate of title that, at the time the amendment is made under clause (a), is by implication subject to the reservation of mines and minerals, to show that title to the mines and minerals is not included therein.

Production of duplicate certificate of title dispensed with

1(2)       In any case to which subsection (1) applies, the district registrar may summarily dispense with the production of any duplicate certificate of title; and section 53 of The Real Property Act is subject to this Act and to anything done under this Act.

Note: This Act replaces S.M. 1955, c. 78.
