Land Grants process, Western Canada 1874 ...

by Wayne
(Montreal QC)

What would the process ( steps ) be for acquiring land under the Dominion Lands Act of 1872?

ie. stake/make claim out the land to make physical notice;

apply ( "petition the Crown" ) for a Canadian land Grant providing personal details (local land registry office )

Required Land Grant conditions (time Ltd)

Conditions ( met ) Completed, ( "Patent" or "ownership" granted, full Title to the land )

Recorded, Land Grant Document issued (Dated later)

Those are my ramblings of staking a claim and steps to Full title. Can anyone improve on this outline?
