Expropriations

Under the Expropriation Act, the government has the right to acquire private land from landowners for public use or benefit. In most cases, the landowner is entitled to receive compensation for the land which is being expropriated.  Most municipalities will send a notice of expropriation letter detailing the process and purpose of the expropriation. These notices are important as they start the timeline for key steps and procedures to be completed. It is crucial not to ignore these notices and to take steps immediately in order to obtain the best results.

If you have been informed that your land may be expropriated, please contact us and we can discuss your options and help you ensure you are properly compensated and are able to effectively navigate the process.
