Certificate of Charge and Certificate of Title to Minerals

The director has approved the use of Form 25, Certificate of Charge, and Form 26, Certificate of Title to Minerals. The use of these forms is compulsory.


On the Form 17 Charge, Notation or Filing, select Nature of Interest, Certificate of Charge or Certificate of Title to Minerals, and attach an image of the original letter.


While s. 208(1) restricts issuance of a certificate of charge to the owner only, the registrar issues a certificate of charge to a solicitor or agent who makes the application for registration of the charge and also applies concurrently for the certificate of charge.
