The Land Titles System in Alberta

The Land Titles Office of Alberta is a registry which contains all the vital information regarding the title to every property in Alberta.  If you need to have changes made to your land title, such as transferring the title of your house (perhaps including one or more children), or a name added on (such as a new spouse, perhaps)  you should first discuss that matter with a lawyer.

Here are the major headings from the Table of Contents of the Land Titles Act:

  • Land Titles Office [2]
  • Officers [3 – 23]
  • Registration [24 – 56]
  • Effect of Registration [57 – 63]
