Sixth Annual Boundary Law Conference
Easements: Update and Refresher

  • How do the new developments impact the practice of land professionals?
  • How can lawyers and surveyors work together while maintaining clarity of role when complex easement problems are encountered?

This conference is designed to be practical and cutting edge in exploring recent trends and developments in both policy and the law regarding easements. The event will be held on eight consecutive Tuesdays, starting April 9, as a series of weekly lunch and learn sessions via our interactive virtual meeting room. Each live 1-hour presentation will focus on a scenario as the context for clarifying recent court decisions. The topics will be configured with complementary samples, best practice guidelines, and precedents that can be reviewed in advance of each session. The objective is to support the formation of professionally defensible opinions that parallel what the courts do.

The eight sessions are configured on the basis of the following topics:

1.  Easements 101: From basics to present day challenges
2.  Differentiating Rights Based on Origin: Express grant, prescription, implication and necessity are not all the same
3.  Private Easements and Public Laneways: A framework for understanding the difference
4.  Encroachments, Spatial Extent and Easement Boundaries: How easement boundaries differ from property boundaries
5.  Statutory Easements and Unregistered Rights: Managing the risks
6.  Easements and Rights-of-Way over Crown Land: A primer
7.  Recent Developments in Condominium Law and Easement Rights: What is changing and what remains the same
8.  Remedies and Solutions for Easements: From court orders to title insurance

In this CPD event, you will:

  • learn about the latest developments in the courts regarding easements;
  • take into account changes in Legislation and Regulations that impact your practice;
  • gain insights into practical solutions that reduce uncertainty (and thus, potential conflict);
  • revisit strategies to better manage risk.

This conference is a great way to earn 12 Formal Activity CPD hours.
