Administration excellence is the cornerstone of the land business. It is one of the most important components in delivering legally defensible lease documentation. That is why we employ the best team of administrators with the most experience. Our administration services include the set up of mineral, surface and Crown files, payment of rentals and third-party obligations, follow-up on outstanding paperwork and dealing with expiries and notifications. We handle all aspects of title registration and security and do more business with the various Land Titles offices than any other land company.

Crown Surface Applications

We offer you a dedicated Crown team and a streamlined Crown surface application process that is cost-efficient. With over 30 years successfully handling complex and non-standard applications, we thoroughly understand the OneStop process including the Sustainable Resource Development (SRD) process and the Enhanced Approval Process (EAP) requirements. Our strong relationship with Forestry is also an advantage to you. We are one of the most active companies working on Crown land. Our Crown team works closely with our Indigenous Consultation team to secure all approvals to allow you to advance your project.

I have to say that working with your team out of Edmonton has been great. Melanie seems very knowledgeable and has been extremely accommodating in helping out on the myriad of rushes I’ve been throwing her way.

I really appreciate how quickly you coordinated this and got us what we were looking for in the same day.  It keeps us moving forward with licensing in order to meet a Lease Expiry. Many thanks to you and your team.
