Subdivision Process

Land subdivision is the process of dividing one parcel of land into two or more parcels, so that separate titles can be registered by the Land Titles Office.

To subdivide land, you must make application to the Planning Department.

All applications are referred to The City's Municipal Planning Commission for a decision. There is a 19 day appeal period, which must expire before the Provincial Land Titles Office will issue new titles.

Fees and deposits are assessed for the initial application and again at final approval for each new lot created. It takes approximately two months to process a subdivision application, assuming it is not appealed, plus processing time required by the Land Titles Office.
