Upper Canada (Ontario) Land Registry Records


LAND REGISTRY records document the ownership of a property after it was granted or sold by the Crown. LAND REGISTRY records include an index/dates of transactions such as mortgages, sales, land transfers, quit claims and wills. Individual 'instruments' may be available/ordered from the index for an individual property.
