Title of the Legislative Text

Expropriation Act, R.S.C., 1985, c. E-21

Provision

22. Every registrar shall receive and permanently preserve in his office such notices and plans as the Attorney General of Canada causes to be registered under this Part, and shall endorse thereon the day, hour and minute when they were received by him as the time of registration and make such entries in his records as will make their registration of public record.

Problem

For the English civil law audience, upon the entry into force of the Civil Code of Quebec in 1994, the term "record" became obsolete. It has been replaced by "register".

Solution

In the English version, "or registers" is added.

Harmonized Provision
