The Public Lands Administration Regulation (PLAR) was passed on August 25, 2011, and was implemented on September 12, 2011. PLAR was updated in 2017.
Updates to legislation occurs at times and it is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure you are referencing the most current piece of legislation.
Master schedule of standards and conditions (MSSC)
The MSSC lists standards and conditions that apply to dispositions for public lands issued under the Public Lands Act.
Purpose of the PLAR Tables A1 and A2
The Government of Alberta (GoA) and the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) manage the use of public lands. Table A1 lists purposes and activities administered by the GoA. Table A2 lists purposes and activities administered by the AER.
- list the acceptable purposes and activities that may occur on public land under the Public Lands Act
- define each purpose and activity and identity their associated disposition type
- provide requirements of what is needed to submit an application
These tables are updated periodically and should be consulted frequently.
