Sub-activity 3.2.2

Canada’s Legal Boundaries


Boundary uncertainty undermines public confidence in the property rights system and is a barrier to exercising property and sovereign rights, as well as responsible social and economic development. For the benefit of all Canadians, this program ensures boundary certainty through: a) the proper maintenance of the Canada/US international boundary for law enforcement, land administration, customs and immigration, and trans-boundary resource management; b) effective boundary surveys of Aboriginal settlement lands to meet Canada's obligations under land claim settlement legislation and treaties; and c) statutory registration of legal surveys on Canada Lands (the North, Canada's offshore area, Aboriginal Lands and National Parks), essential to the creation of property parcels. The boundary certainty provided by this sub-activity promotes public confidence, enables effective management of Canada lands and collaboration across jurisdictions, which advances the interests of Canada`s natural resources sectors, both domestically and at an international level.
