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
 10. Her Majesty may grant federal real property to Herself.
Problem
The term "grant" does not reflect the civil law in English.
Solution

In the English version, the term "concede" is added to reflect the civil law. No change to the French version is necessary as the term concéder reflects both the civil and common law.

Harmonized Provision

  10. Her Majesty may grant federal real property and concede federal immovables to Herself.

Federal Law-Civil Law Harmonization Act, No. 1, S.C. 2001, c. 4, s. 16
