Land status report

A land status report is one of the required documents to be submitted to the Surveyor General Branch when a surveyor is requesting specific survey instructions (B2-1 section 4.2, C1 section 17, General Instructions for Surveys, e-Edition). Before requesting specific survey instructions (C1 section 16), the surveyor is responsible for reviewing the status in the land which will be surveyed.

For surveys in the territories, the land status report shall outline a list of the status and owner of every tract of land being dealt with by the survey, and identify what Acts the survey is being executed under. In addition, the report should include copies of certificates of titles and of the crown land survey authorities.

The following is an example of the details.
