New Provincial Trespassing Legislation in Effect

Under the new legislation, those wishing to access a rural landowner’s property for recreational purposes will need to gain consent from the owner. Consent can be provided in writing, electronically online, orally or through signage. 

The legislation responds to concerns expressed by rural landowners regarding individuals who trespass on their property while still giving the opportunity to take advantage of outdoor activities such as hunting, fishing, snowmobiling and hiking.

The legislation provides legal protection to landowners and occupiers against property damage and the risk of agricultural diseases and limits any liability that may arise from a trespasser’s presence on their property.

Police and provincial enforcement officers will continue to be responsible for laying charges related to trespassing.
