Bill 48 and the Land and Property Rights Tribunal17-Jun-21
In a prior post, we reported on Bill 48, the Red Tape Reduction Implementation Act, 2020. As the name suggests, Bill 48 is part of the provincial government’s agenda to reduce “red tape” and speed up approval times while creating jurisdictional harmonization and improving service delivery. The majority of Bill 48’s most impactful changes took effect as of June 2, 2021. Many of these significant changes have been canvassed in our prior post. Here we focus on the creation of the Land and Property Rights Tribunal (“LPRT”) and what this change means for Albertans.
