Effect of Registration

Marginal note:Priority
  •  (1) Subject to section 31, interests — or, in Quebec, rights — registered under these Regulations that affect the same parcel of first nation land have priority according to the time and date of the registration of the documents evidencing those interests or rights and not according to the time and date the documents were executed or, in Quebec, signed according to all the required formalities for its validity.

  • Marginal note:No priority to licences and other documents

    (2) For greater certainty, subsection (1) does not apply to a document that does not grant an interest — or, in Quebec, a right — in first nation land.

  • SOR/2008-263, s. 8.
Marginal note:Unregistered interests or rights

 A registered interest — or, in Quebec, a registered right — affecting a parcel of first nation land is entitled to priority over an unregistered interest or right affecting the same parcel.

  • SOR/2008-263, s. 8.
Marginal note:Revolving mortgages or hypothecs

 A registered mortgage or hypothec has priority over a subsequently registered interest — or, in Quebec, registered right — that affects the same parcel of first nation land, to the extent of the money actually advanced under the mortgage or hypothec, to a maximum of the amount secured by the mortgage or hypothec, even if all or part of the money was advanced after the registration of the subsequently registered interest or right, unless the mortgagee or hypothecary creditor had actual notice of the registration of the subsequently registered interest or right before making the advance.

  • SOR/2008-263, s. 8.
Marginal note:Deferred priority
  •  (1) In any province other than Quebec, the holder of a registered interest, or a person applying to register an interest, may apply to record a postponement agreement that gives priority over the registered interest to a specified interest that was, or is to be, subsequently registered.

  • Marginal note:In Quebec

    (2) In Quebec, the holder of a registered right, or a person applying to register a right, may apply to record a postponement agreement that gives priority over the registered right to a specified right that was, or is to be, subsequently registered.

  • Marginal note:Priority on recording

    (3) On the recording of a postponement agreement, priority shall be accorded to the interests or rights referred to in the agreement in the manner provided for in the agreement.

  • SOR/2008-263, s. 8.
