(1)  all or that part of a reserve which is under the authority or management of another Minister or a public body;
(2)  a forest road within the meaning of the Forest Act (chapter F-4.1) or a mining road within the meaning of the Mining Act (chapter M-13.1);
(3)  roads used for public purposes on 17 December 1987, the ownership of which has not, under section 45.1, devolved to a department, a public body or a municipality, and which have not been the subject of a title or a transfer of authority or management granted by the Minister before 12 December 1991;
(4)  any reserve or that part of it which has been the subject of a lease, still in force on 12 December 1991, granted under the Lands and Forests Act (chapter T-9) or under this Act in favour of a person other than the holder of the letters patent or notarial deed, or his successors;
(5)  any reserve or that part of a reserve which has been the subject of a lease granted under the Lands and Forests Act (chapter T-9) or under this Act in favour of a person other than the holder of the letters patent or notarial act, or his successors, having expired before 12 December 1991 but having been renewed before 16 May 1995 with retroactive effect to the date of expiry of the lease.
In the cases referred to in subparagraphs 4 and 5 of the first paragraph, the lessee retains the right to renew the lease once, for the same term, which may not exceed ten years and he may acquire the leased land before the date of expiry of the lease, in accordance with section 34 or section 37. If he does not acquire the leased land before the date of expiry of the lease, the retroactive devolution provided for in section 45.1 applies to the land from the date of expiry of the lease.
Where land referred to in subparagraph 5 of the first paragraph is sold under the second paragraph, the Minister shall pay to the holder of the letters patent or notarial act, or his successors, an indemnity equal to the price paid by the lessee.
1987, c. 76, s. 5; 1991, c. 52, s. 9; 1995, c. 20, s. 23; 1999, c. 40, s. 317.
45.2.1. Any reserve affecting land referred to in Schedule I shall also remain in the domain of the State.
A notice containing the description of the reserve or that part of it which is retained for purposes in the public interest, made according to law, must be registered by the Minister, not later than 12 December 1993, in the registry office of the registration division in which the immovable is situated. Registration is effected by deposit, free of charge. In a territory under cadastral survey, the notice is entered in the index of immovables.
From the date of registration, section 45.1 shall apply to the reserve or that part of it which is not affected by the notice. If no notice has been registered within the period prescribed in the second paragraph, section 45.1 shall apply to the whole reserve.
The Minister may also, on the same conditions, register a notice to exempt a land from the application of the first paragraph; from the date of registration, section 45.1 applies to the reserve or that part of it which is affected by the notice.
1991, c. 52, s. 9; 1999, c. 40, s. 317.
45.2.2. Section 45.1 does not apply
(1)  to a reserve or that part of a reserve resulting from a sale, a transfer or a waiver by the Minister that occurred before 12 December 1991;
(2)  to a reserve or that part of a reserve which, on 12 December 1991, is the subject of an offer of sale or transfer by the Minister in favour of a person other than the holder of the letters patent or notarial deed or his successors, if the offer is accepted before the date on which it expires.
1991, c. 52, s. 9; 1995, c. 20, s. 24.
45.3. The devolution provided for in section 45.1 is subject
(1)  to the right to use or occupy the reserve under a title, servitude, authorization or permit granted or issued pursuant to an Act, a decree or an order;
(2)  to uses for public purposes by a department, a public body or a municipality, where such uses exist on 17 December 1987 and are still exercised on 12 December 1991, in cases where no title, servitude, permit, authorization or transfer of authority or management has been granted by the Minister.
No right contemplated in the first paragraph nor the exercise of such a right may in any case render the beneficiary of the devolution and his successors liable towards the holder of the rights or towards third persons.
1987, c. 76, s. 5; 1991, c. 52, s. 9; 1995, c. 20, s. 25.
45.4. Where affected by the reserve on 12 November 1987, the lands listed in Schedule II and those bordering on parts of rivers also listed in Schedule II are subject, without compensation, to the right of any member of the public to go on foot along the bank of a river, over a strip of land 10 metres in depth from the bank, and stop for the purpose of fishing.
The Minister may, by order, exempt certain lands from the application of this section; the order shall take effect on the date of its publication in the Gazette officielle du Québec.
1987, c. 76, s. 5; 1991, c. 52, s. 10.
45.5. Where land is separated from a stretch of water solely by a reserve and where the owner no longer has access to the stretch of water by such reserve owing to the devolution pursuant to section 45.1, the reserve shall be subject to a right of way in favour of the land.
To enjoy the benefit of that right, the owner of the land must enter into an agreement with the person to whom the reserve has devolved as to the site of the servitude following a request to that effect; the request must be made not later than 17 December 1989 or, where letters patent are issued in respect of a land pursuant to Division IV of Chapter III of the Act respecting agricultural lands in the domain of the State (chapter T-7.1) after 17 December 1987, within two years of the date of issue of the letters patent.
If an agreement is reached by the parties, the act recognizing the servitude shall be registered at the registry office.
Failing an agreement and on an application by either of the parties, the Minister shall, by order, establish the site of the servitude upon that part of the reserve where it will be least injurious.
Before rendering his decision, the Minister shall notify the parties, by registered mail, of his intention; the parties may present observations within the time indicated in the notice to the representative of the Minister identified in the notice.
The order shall be registered, at the expense of the beneficiary of the servitude, at the registry office.
The costs of establishing and maintaining the site of the servitude shall be payable by the beneficiary of the servitude.
1987, c. 76, s. 5; 1991, c. 52, s. 11; 1997, c. 43, s. 777; 1999, c. 40, s. 317; 2000, c. 42, s. 233; I.N. 2016-01-01 (NCCP).

The reserve contemplated in the first paragraph is of 18 metres in the case of a sale or grant made after 22 December 1977.
The provisions of this section do not apply in the case of a sale or grant for the purposes of the construction of railways, water-works, bridges, canals, ditches or other works of a public character, nor to the works or the erection of the buildings necessary for their operation.
1987, c. 23, s. 46.
46.1. The alienation of land in the domain of the State by the Minister does not have the effect of transferring ownership of a forest road or a mine road or a road maintained by the Minister of Transport or by a municipality, whether or not the presence of the road is mentioned in the act evidencing the transfer of ownership.
The alienation of land traversed by a road, other than a road mentioned in the first paragraph, that provides access to other public land or to private land is subject, without indemnity and provided the users ensure its maintenance, to a servitude of passage over the right of way of the road either on foot or in a vehicle of whatever type.

A temporary occupation licence is issued for a period of not over twelve months. It does not authorize the holder to erect or maintain any construction other than a rough shelter. It may be cancelled by the Minister at any time without notice, formality or compensation. Such a licence is not registered in the register instituted under section 26.
A visitor’s licence is issued for a period of not over seven months in a given year. It authorizes the holder to camp. It may be cancelled in the same manner as a temporary occupation licence and is not registered.

Mining rights are not included in the allotment, notwithstanding the absence of any mention to that effect.

He may also order the premises restored to their former condition and, if the person fails to do so, authorize the minister or public body having authority over the land to cause the required work to be carried out at the respondent’s expense.
The order has the same force as an eviction order and is executed in the same manner as an eviction order in a possessory action.
