The Minister is authorized to draw up original or revised plans for any territory he may designate, in the electoral districts of Bonaventure, Duplessis, Gaspé-Nord, Gaspé-Sud, the Îles-de-la-Madeleine and Saguenay, or in that part of the electoral district of Rivière-du-Loup which comprises lots “A”, “B”, “C” and “D” of range “A” and lots 1 to 37 of ranges “A” and “B” of the township of Bégon.
The preparation of the plans is subject to sections 9, 10, 11 to 18 and 20 of the Act to promote the reform of the cadastre in Québec (chapter R-3.1), with the necessary modifications.
Such plans shall be deposited with the Ministère des Ressources naturelles.

4. During the eight months following the date of coming into force of the plans, any interested person may consult them without charge. At the expiration of such period the Minister shall deliver a certificate of ownership to any occupant of the immovable with or without titles, even though he be only an administrator or mere operator, except in case of written opposition by an interested person. The registration of any real right affecting a lot comprised in the territory for which a plan has been deposited shall be renewed within the same period, in the manner prescribed by article 2942 of the Civil Code, except a real right affecting any lot indicated on a vertical cadastral plan, divided co-ownership plan or co-emphyteusis plan, whether identified or not on the revised plan.
Failing such renewal, the real rights preserved by the initial registration shall have no effect as regards other creditors or subsequent purchasers whose rights are regularly published.

7. After the expiration of the eight months following the coming into force of the plans, the Minister shall deliver to the registrar a list, which he shall attest, of the lots for which he has received no opposition and the names of persons mentioned therein as occupants.
Publication of the list is effected by the filing of the list itself. The registrar shall enter, under the number of each lot included in the list, the registration number of the list and the name of the occupant. Such entry entails adjudication of the lot to its occupant, as owner.

Should an agreement be concluded, it shall be attested in writing under the hand of the interested parties and the Minister shall then send to the registrar a certificate attesting such conditions and obligations, which shall be binding to both the parties.
Should the Minister not be able to reconcile the parties, and if during the 18 months following the coming into force of the plans, the opposing party or any successor of the opposing party has not availed himself of his recourse by legal action involving the registrar of the registration division wherein the said lot is situated, the opposing party and his successor shall then be forfeited of their claim or demand concerning said lot and the registrar shall, upon a request in writing of the occupant or of his successor, deliver him a certificate of ownership of such lot.
The certificates referred to in this section shall be registered by the registrar on the land file of the lot concerned.
R. S. 1964, c. 321, s. 8; 1988, c. 22, s. 28; 1993, c. 52, s. 38; 1999, c. 40, s. 318.
