Manitoba’s new electronic land title filing system

The Property Registry formally launched Manitoba’s new electronic registration system in December, which will modernize and improve the efficiency, security and quality of land titles filing in the province.

eRegistration will automate the submission and registration of title-related documents. The system works with all combinations of land title registration forms, and was built to extract data from the land titles secure digital smart forms. The flexibility and accuracy of eRegistration will reduce many of the errors and omissions currently found in paper-based submissions.

Manitobans will experience a more secure and improved service that incudes shorter wait times, and significant improvements to the land titles search and registration process.

The new system will become mandatory on April 3, 2018 for all lawyers, financial institutions and any users who file more than 500 land title documents per year. Users who file more than 100 land titles documents per year will be required to use the new service as of October 1 of next year.

eRegistration has been in development since 2015, and involved consultations with stakeholders and clients to help ensure the system is user friendly, and provides a consistent experience.
