Land Titles Modernization

Land Titles Modernization Project

The Government of Yukon is working to update the land titles system to facilitate more timely and efficient land transactions and provide citizens with better access to land titles information.

Key components of the project include modernizing the:

  • Land Titles Act and Regulations;
  • Condominium Act and Regulations;
  • Land Titles Office supporting computer system; and
  • Business processes used in the Land Titles Office.

We are now in the Development Phase of the project, which involves:

  • Introducing and passing the new Land Titles Act, 2015 (proclaimed June 20, 2016) and the new Condominium Act, 2015 (completed May 2015; will come into effect at a future date) in the Yukon Legislature;
  • Drafting new land titles regulations:
  • Drafting new condominium regulations:
    • work will commence in summer 2016;
    • completion is anticipated in late 2016.
  • Identifying a new land titles computer system and developing new business processes in the Land Titles Office:
    • an examination of software system requirements and business processes is underway; and
    • the procurement process for a new software system is expected to start in the early part of 2016.
