Title to Land
From: The Law of Property
Most of this chapter is concerned with estates in land, including the nature of an estate and the different kinds of estates that exist in Canada. The chapter begins with the concept of tenure, which is the relationship between the Crown and a person who holds an estate, and ends with Aboriginal title, which is another form of title to land.
