C-47.1 - Municipal Powers Act

Full text
247.1. A local municipality owns the land occupied, on 31 December 2005, by a municipal road that was governed by the Municipal Code of Québec (chapter C-27.1) and that, on that date, was under its management or the management of another local municipality having jurisdiction in the territory that includes the land.
If no land title document has been published in the land register for land the municipality owns under the first paragraph, the municipality determines the boundaries of the land and requests publication of its right of ownership by observing the formalities prescribed in sections 73 and 74 with the necessary modifications.
Ownership of the land referred to in the first paragraph is conferred, retroactively to 1 January 2006, on the local municipality having jurisdiction in the territory concerned on 14 December 2006.
However, if another local municipality had jurisdiction in the territory concerned before that second date, that other municipality is deemed to have owned the land as of 1 January 2006 and until the municipality referred to in the third paragraph succeeds to the rights and obligations of the other municipality with respect to the territory concerned.
