T-8 - Colonization Land Sales Act

Full text
56. Whenever inconsistent grants or letters patent have been issued for the same land through error, and in all inconsistent cases of sales or appropriations of the same land, the Minister may, in case of sale, cause the purchase money to be repaid with interest. When the land has passed from the original purchaser or grantee, or has been improved before the discovery of the error, or when the original grant or appropriation was a free grant, he may, in substitution, assign land or issue scrip entitling the party to purchase Crown lands of such value and to such extent as to the Minister may seem just and equitable under the circumstances.
No such claim shall be entertained unless made within five years from the discovery of the error.
R. S. 1964, c. 102, s. 56.
