Definitions
1   In this Regulation,

     (a)  "Act" means the Land Titles Act; 

     (b)  "Canadian Units" means the Canadian units of measurement, as
set out and defined in Schedule II to the Weights and Measures Act
(Canada);

     (c)  "International System of Units" means the International System
of Units (including the customary units of measurement) referred to in
section 4(1) to (3) of the Weights and Measures Act (Canada).


Expression of measurements according to certificate of title
2   An instrument, other than a plan, or a caveat that applies to all the
land described in a certificate of title must, when presented for
registration under the Act, express all measurements of the land described
in it in the same units of measurement in which the certificate of title is
expressed.


Expression of measurements according to specific systems
3(1)  A plan or any other instrument or a caveat that contains or results
in a land description that is different from the land description in the
applicable certificate of title must, when presented for registration under
the Act, express all measurements of the land described in it in the
International System of Units.

(2)  If a plan or any other instrument or a caveat referred to in
subsection (1) includes a measurement of area, the area may, in addition to
being expressed in the International System of Units, be expressed in
Canadian Units.


Exception to section 3(1)
4   Notwithstanding section 3(1), the Registrar may authorize the
registration of an instrument or caveat that expresses measurements only in
Canadian Units if the Registrar considers that the determination of the
measurements on the basis of the International System of Units and their
expression on that basis in that particular instrument or caveat would
result in extraordinary expense or other hardship.


Conversion of measurements
5   The Registrar may authorize the conversion of any measurement in a
certificate of title expressed in Canadian Units into the International
System of Units, and may make the appropriate correction in the certificate
of title.


New certificates of title

Registrar may authorize that a measurement of area expressed in the
certificate of title be expressed in the International System of Units and
in Canadian Units.

measurements expressed in the correction must be expressed in the same
units of measurement as those in which the plan is expressed.

Expiry
9   For the purpose of ensuring that this Regulation is reviewed for
ongoing relevancy and necessity, with the option that it may be repassed in
