1.02 What is a Subdivision?

Any of the following constitutes a subdivision and must therefore be approved by the appropriate Approving Officer:

           Consolidating two or more properties into one lot

Part 8 of the Land Title Act provides for the cancellation of interior lot lines. This does not require the Approving Officer's approval but is approved by the Registrar of the Land Title & Survey Authority. The above diagram shows an example of a consolidation that may require review or approval.


           Adjusting or realigning an existing property line

           Creating several lots from one or more existing properties

           Creating several strata lots from one or more existing properties

           Creating several lots from an existing property, with creation of a road
