Under The Public Utilities Easements Act, a land owner may grant an easement to:

  • the federal or provincial government;
  • a public utility, railway, telegraph, gas, oil or carbon dioxide pipeline company; or
  • a cable television or telecommunication company.

The easement may permit, for example, the transporting of water, the laying of pipes or transmission lines, the disposal of sewage, the construction of spur tracks and snow fences, and similar rights.

Easements may be registered against titles to land in the Land Titles Registry. The rights are binding upon the land owner, his or her heirs, executors and administrators.

The Act also provides for a process to protect the interests of parties who are not owners but that may have an interest in the land to be subject to the easement.
