The Land & Property Rights Tribunal

A quasi-judicial tribunal that makes decisions about land use planning, development, right of entry, compensation and assessment matters.  The Tribunal grants right of entry and resolves compensation disputes involving expropriation, unpaid surface leases, or when operators require access to private land or occupied Crown land for the purposes of developing subsurface resources. The Tribunal also provides parties with a dispute resolution process to help resolve their disputes prior to a formal hearing. Finally, the Tribunal supports municipalities by providing certification training for board members and clerks of Assessment Review Boards and Subdivision and Development Appeal Boards across Alberta.
