Title of the Legislative Text

Federal Real Property Act, S.C. 1991, c. 50 (title changed to Federal Real Property and Federal Immovables Act by the Federal Law-Civil Law Harmonization Act, No. 1, S.C. 2001, c. 4, s. 10)

Provision

 11. (2) A grant, vesting order or other conveyancing instrument in favour of Her Majesty in respect of any real property belonging to Her Majesty in any right other than Canada results, on its acceptance, in Her Majesty having administration and control of the property.

Problem

The term "grant" is not appropriate in civil law in English in this context.

Solution

In the English version, the term "concession" is added to reflect the civil law in English. However, the term "grant" is maintained for a common law audience.

Harmonized Provision

 11. (2) A grant, concession, vesting order or other conveyancing instrument or transfer act in favour of Her Majesty in respect of any real property or immovable belonging to Her Majesty in any right other than Canada results, on its acceptance, in Her Majesty having administration and control of the property.
